PREFACE. 

REGARD  for  ancestors,  with  a  strong  desire  to  aid  in 
preserving  many  of  their  records  from  oblivion,  is  one  of 
the  motives  which  prompted  the  compilation  of  this  work. 

Genealogy  occupies  a  unique  department  in  literature,  in  that  it 
requires  unmeasured  patience  and  perseverance  and  a  devoted  love 
for  the  work  on  the  part  of  one  who  assumes  the  burden,  coupled 
with  the  fact  that  very  inadequate  pecuniary  reward  will  be  realized 
in  return  for  the  time  expended  in  producing  desired  results,  so  that 
the  task  must  be  considered  purely  as  a  woik  of  love. 

The  compiler  began  his  work  about  twenty  years  ago  by  personal 
search  of  records  in  the  early  homes  of  the  Cadys  in  Massachusetts 
and  Eastern  Connecticut.  Since  then  the  work  has  been  continued, 
as  time  permitted,  by  research  in  many  other  localities,  in  private 
and  public  records,  and  by  extensive  correspondence  with  members 
of  the  family  in  most  of  the  states  of  the  Union.  Hundreds  of 
letters  have  been  sent  requesting  records,  but  it  is  to  be  regretted 
that  some  of  them  have  received  no  response,  thus  allowing  a 
partial  lack  of  data  which  a  little  attention  might  have  supplied. 
But  the  sincere  thanks  of  the  compiler  are  due  the  majority  who 
have  kindly  responded. 

The  compiler  thankfully  acknowledges  the  aid  rendered  him  by 
the  late  Prof.  Daniel  Cady  Eaton  of  New  Haven,  who  contributed 
his  researches  to  be  used  in  the  work.  By  Frederick  Waterman 
Cady  of  East  Providence,  R.  I.,  who  turned  over  his  valuable 
material  which  he  began  collecting  many  years  ago,  concerning  his 
own  and  some  other  branches  of  the  family.  By  the  late  Dwight 
Holmes  Cady  of  Springfield,  Mass.,  for  the  records  and  well-drawn 
portraiture  and  environments  of  his  immediate  ancestors.  By  Miss 
Flora  May  King  of  Somersville,  Conn.,  who,  using  for  a  basis  the 
data  left  by  her  cousin,  D.  H.  Cady,  has,  during  the  past  ten  years, 
admirably  succeeded,  with  great  care  and  patience,  in  completing 


PREFACE.  5 

quite  fully  the  records  of  the  descendants  of  Daniel  Cady  of 
Stafford,  Conn.  By  Judge  William  Gere  Cady  of  Syracuse,  N.  Y., 
for  the  loan  of  his  carefully  collected  records  of  the  many  families 
connected  with  his  branch  of  the  Cadys.  By  Monroe  Marsh  Cady, 
lawyer,  of  Dubuque,  Iowa,  for  his  many  contributions  and  aid  in 
other  ways.  And  last,  but  not  least,  by  Curtis  Converse  Cady 
Bradley  of  Manchester,  Iowa,  who  has  furnished  many  records,  and 
by  untiring  effort  has  identified  William  4  Cady  of  Plainfield,  Conn., 
as  the  father  of  Dea.  Eleazer  Cady  of  Hinsdale,  Mass.,  about  whom 
much  uncertainty  had  long  existed.  These  sources  of  aid,  combined 
with  the  long  list  of  those  who  have  so  generously  responded  to  the 
call  for  records,  have  been  important  factors  in  contributing  to  the 
successful  outcome  of  this  genealogy.  Although  lack  of  space  forbids 
further  mention  here  of  individual  cases,  yet  the  simplest  record 
received  has  been  appreciated,  and  will  be  by  all  concerned. 

Attention  is  called  to  the  leading  characteristics  of  a  majority  of 
the  descendants  of  Nicholas  Cady,  which  have  been  push,  progress 
and  patriotism.  They  figured  largely  and  honorably  in  the  wars  of 
the  Revolution,  of  1812,  and  in  the  late  Civil  strife.  They  have 
always  been  among  the  pioneers  who  have  settled  the  newer  portions 
of  our  country,  east  and  west,  where  also  they  have  been  men  of 
affairs.  They  have  furnished  members  for  Congress  and  state 
legislatures ;  large  numbers  for  all  the  leading  professions,  for 
successful  merchants  and  hosts  of  private  citizens,  respected  for 
their  moral  worth. 

Much  material  came  late  to  hand  which  had  to  be  used  without 
the  usual  extension.  The  same  cause  accounts  for  most  of  the 
fractional  numbers.  While  the  compiler  has  taken  great  pains  to 
insure  correctness  of  statement,  he  is  aware  that  errors  will  occur 
with  the  most  rigid  proof  reading  and  the  most  kindly  intending 
copyst.  So  the  compiler  would  be  thankful  for  the  correction  of 
any  errors  found  in  the  book.  The  self-imposed  task  has  been 
accomplished  and  the  result  is  sent  forth  with  the  hope  that  it  will 
serve  as  a  new  bond  of  family  union  and  that  the  deeds  of  honor- 
able progenitors  may  ever  be  an  inspiration  for  progressive  endeavor 
on  the  part  of  all  present  and  future  desecendants  of  Nicholas  Cady, 
our  worthy  ancestor.

EXPLANATIONS. 

/"  l  "V  HIS  genealogy  is  arranged  according  to  the  plan  adopted 
by  the  New  England  Historical  and  Genealogical 
Register,  which  has  come  into  general  use.  Thus  on 
page  20,  the  figures  on  the  extreme  left  of  the  page  denote  the 
successive  numbers  of  the  heads  of  the  families  which  will  be  taken 
up  again ;  when  a  number  is  omitted  before  a  name  it  indicates  that 
such  a  name  will  not  be  mentioned  again.  Thus  on  page  20, 
number  10-i.  James,  etc.,  we  find  on  page  28,  where  James  is 
brought  up  with  full  particulars  and  his  full  family  record  is  given. 
The  small  exponents  figures  on  page  28  which  follow,  thus: 
12  James3  Cady,  (James2,  Nicholas1)*  show  the  number  of 
generations  from  the  common  ancestor,  Nicholas  Cady. 

Abbreviations.  —  Abt.  for  about ;  b.  for  born ;  bapt.  for  baptized ; 
ch.  for  children ;  d.  for  died ;  dau.  for  daughter ;  m.  for  married  ; 
unm.  for  unmarried. 

Old  and  New  Style.  —  All  dates  prior  to  1742  are  supposed  to 
conform  to  the  old  style  then  used. 


INTRODUCTION. 


Origin  of  the  Name  of  Cady. 

ARTHUR,  in  his  Etymological  Dictionary  of  Family  Names, 
says  that  Cady  is  derived  from  Ca-dia,  a  Gaelic  word 
signifying  the  House  of  God.  He  also  says  that  Cadie  in 
Scottish  is  an  errand  boy,  a  messenger.  From  the  foregoing  it 
would  seem  that  the  name  had  its  origin  among  the  Gael  of  the 
north  and  was  nourished  there  later  by  the  Scotch,  from  whom  it 
found  its  way  over  the  border  into  England,  where  it  has  long 
flourished ;  thence  it  came  early  to  America,  where  it  has  taken 
deep  root  and  furnished  a  host  of  worthy  representatives,  from  the 
hardy  yeoman  to  men  in  business  centers  and  honored  names  in  all 
the  nobler  professions  of  our  land. 

This  patronymic,  like  many  other  names,  has  undergone  many 
changes  in  spelling.  In  the  ancient  Hundred  Rolls  it  is  Cade,  then 
Caddie,  Caddy,  Cadye,  Kadye,  Cadey,  and  last,  Cady,  which  form 
now  holds  in  this  country. 

Cady  Coats  of  Arms. 

Quite  a  number  of  Cadys  in  several  of  the  English  counties  have 
been  honored  with  coats  of  arms,  viz. :  Caddy,  i  ;  Cade  in  Derby- 
shire, 2  ;  Cade  in  Rumford,  County  Essex,  i  ;  Cade  in  Greenwich, 
County  Kent,  i  ;  Cade  in  County  Suffolk,  i  ;  Cadye  and  Kadye  in 
County  Gloucestershire,  2  ;  the  latter  is  described  as  follows  :  "  On 
a  mount,  vert,  a  cocatrice,  or ;  combed  and  wattled,  ducally  gorged 
and  chained,  or."  *

IO  DESCENDANTS    OF    NICHOLAS    CADY. 

Cadys  in  England. 

Stephen's  National  Biography  says  :  "The  name  of  Cade  was  not 
uncommon  in  Sussex,  in   the  neighborhood  of  Heathfield,  in  1450." 

We  find  the  name  of  Walto  Cade  and  Margery  Cade  in  the  ancient 
document  called  the  Hundred  Rolls.  In  1450  we  find  Jack  Cade  the 
leader  of  a  formidable  rebellion  in  Kent.  "  Over-taxation,  the  bad 
management  of  the  Council,  the  extortion  of  the  subordinate  officers, 
the  injustice  of  the  king's  bench,  the  abuse  of  the  right  of 
purveyance,  the  "enquestes"  and  amercements,  and  the  illegitimate 
control  of  elections  were  the  chief  causes  of  the  rising  of  1450." 
The  rising  was  political  and  not  religious.  It  was  not  a  disorderly 
mob,  but  was  a  well  organized  rising  of  the  people  at  large.  "  The 
Commons  in  1450  arose  against  Lancaster  and  in  favor  of  York. 
Their  rising  was  the  first  great  struggle  in  the  Wars  of  the  Roses."  * 

Cade  and  his  rebels  defeated  the  royal  forces  at  Seven  Oaks  June 
27,  and  took  possession  of  London  July  2,  1450,  but  soon  after  they 
were  beaten  in  a  battle  and  forced  to  quit  the  city.  Cade,  the 
leader,  was  killed  near  Heathfield,  Sussex,  July  12,  1450."! 

The  Cadys  of  Devonshire. 

In  1892  Prof.  Daniel  Cady  Eaton  of  Yale  University  and  the 
compiler  of  this  work  engaged  Mr.  J.  J.  Howard,  Maltravers'  Herald, 
an  English  expert,  to  search  the  Registers  of  Northam,  Abbotsham 
and  Bedford  on  the  western  side  of  Devonshire  County,  Eng.,  for 
evidence  of  Cades  or  Cadys  in  that  locality.  The  result  was  that  he 
copied  from  the  various  registers  about  900  names  of  Cadys  and  the 
allied  families  of  Rowe,  Hooper,  Strange,  Lawrence  and  others,  with 
whom  they  had  closely  intermarried  since  1540. 

The  earliest  name  in  the  list  is  that  of  William  Cade,  bapt.  in 
Northam,  Devon  County,  Nov.  10,  1540,  but  his  parents  are  not  given. 
A  list  of  his  children  followed  in  due  time.  As  our  search  failed  to 
find  any  trace  of  Nicholas  Cade,  a  detailed  report  of  the  investiga- 
tion is  not  deemed  necessary,  although  there  is  some  probability  that 
he  migrated  from  this  locality. 

In  a  list  of  Pedigrees  in  Visitation  of  the  County  of  Hertford, 
1592-1634,  there  is  given  the  name  of  Cade  of  Kings'  Langley.

DESCENDANTS    OF    NICHOLAS    CADY.  II 

Godfrey  Cade  was  witness  to  will  of  Mary  Street  of  Bridgewater, 
England,  July  16,  1625.* 

John  Park  of  London,  Eng.,  merchant  tailor,  in  will  dated  July 
3,  1620,  mentions  brothers  of  his  wife,  Andrew  Cade,  Symond  Cade, 
and  the  nephew,  Walter  Cade.     Will  proved  Apr.  5,  1 627.1 

Salisbury  Cade,  b.  Kent,  Eng.,  1660;  graduated  from  Trunly 
College,  Oxford,  Eng.,  1691,  with  title  of  M.  D;  d.  1720. 

Cades  of  Derbyshire. 

Cade  is  the  name  of  a  very  old  Derbyshire  family,  and  is  to  be 
found  in  the  early  Parish  Registers  of  Chesterfield,  Eckington, 
Barlborough,  Staveley,  etc.  The  Pedigree  Register  of  June,  1909, 
just  received  from  London,  gives  an  extended  and  interesting  list  of 
descendants  of  John  Cade,  who  in  1327  was  one  of  the  six  inhabi- 
tants of  Eckington  assessed  at  60s  for  goods.  The  record  extends 
from  1327  to  about  1800. 

The  above  citations  are  given  to  show  that  the  Cadys  were  not 
limited  to  a  single  locality  but  were  dispersed  from  an  early  date  in 
many  of  the  English  counties,  of  whom  a  goodly  number  were 
honored  by  the  bestowment  of  coats  of  arms  for  valor  or  other 
deeds  deemed  worthy  of  royal  favor. 

Migrations  of  Cadys  to  America. 

James  Cade,  who  settled  in  Hingham,  Mass.,  1635,  was  bapt.  May 
16,  1611,  the  son  of  Christopher  Cade,  bapt.  Apr.  10,  1583,  son  of 
James  Cade,  bapt.  June  29,  1552,  all  natives  of  Northam,  County 
Devon,  Eng.  The  younger,  James  Cade,  married  Aug.  21,  1633, 
Margaret  Browne  of  Bidford,  near  Northam.  Their  first  child  was 
Philip,  born  in  Northam  Mar.  20,  1635.  Some  time  in  1635  James 
Cade  migrated  to  New  England,  for  we  found  he  "was  the  first  one 
to  draw  his  house  lot  in  Hingham,  Mass.,  Sept.  18,  1635  ;  his  lot 
was  next  to  the  sea,  what  is  now  Ship  St.,  in  Hingham."  He  was 
one  of  the  29  first  settlers. J

I2  DESCENDANTS   OF    NICHOLAS    CADY. 

We  next  hear  of  him  in  Boston,  Dec.  4,  1638,  when  he  and  his 
wife  Margaret  mortgaged  their  property  in  Northam,  lately  belonging 
to  his  father,  Christopher  Cade,  and  his  mother,  May  Hopper.  In 
this  mortgage  he  styles  himself  as  a  shipwright.*  His  wife  Margaret 
was  admitted  to  the  church  in  Boston  19  (1)  1643.  Their  child 
Margaret  was  born  4  (8)  1640.  The  last  we  hear  of  him  is  that  he 
removed  to  Yarmouth  (probably  Nova  Scotia). 

In  a  list  of  persons  licensed  to  go  beyond  the  seas  is  given  the 
name  of  William  Caddy,  Jan.  2,  1634,  to  be  transported  to  Virginia 
in  barque  Bonaventure.  Also  ticket  granted  to  Hubert  Henry  on 
ship  John  and  Henry  for  Bristol,  Thomas  Cades,  commander. 
Benjamin  Cady  of  Andover,  Mass.,  m.  Feb.  16,  1664,  Mary,  dau.  of 
Keyes  of  Newbury.  Jonathan  Cady  of  Rowley  m.  Nov.  12,  1667, 
Esther  Chandler  of  Andover.  We  hear  no  more  of  either  of  these 
last  two  Cadys. 

A  Peter  Cade  was  of  Boston  and  on  March  12,  1738,  was  chosen 
constable  and  excused.f  He  was  keeping  tavern  in  Cambridge  in 
1748,  and  died  in  1752,  leaving  a  son  Peter,  aged  14. |  Josiah  Cady 
came  from  England  and  made  a  permanent  settlement  in  Canaan, 
Conn.,  date  not  given,  but  his  oldest  son,  Josiah,  born  in  England, 
died  1800  in  Falls  Village,  Conn.  From  the  fact  that  William,  the 
oldest  child  of  Josiah2,  was  born  in  1785,  it  would  appear  that  the 
elder  Josiah  did  not  come  to  this  country  till  about  1760.  Descend- 
ants still  remain  in  Litchfield  Co.,  Conn.,  and  elsewhere. 

"Thomas  Cade  of  Sturgis,  St.  Joseph  Co.,  Mich.,  was  born  in 
Yorkshire,  Eng.,  Jan.  7,  1786;  died  at  Sturgis,  March  9,  1879,  in 
94th  year.  He  emigrated  in  July,  1830,  going  directly  to  Sturgis, 
where  he  purchased  320  acres  of  prairie  land.  He  was  always 
engaged  in  agriculture,  was  successful  and  was  of  most  honorable 
and  honest  character.  He  left  three  sons,  Stephen  W.,  well  known 
for  his  generosity,  served  as  supervisor  for  many  years  with  credit ; 
another  son  Joseph  has  a  handsome  farm  and  buildings."  §

DESCENDANTS  OF  NICHOLAS  CADY 

Of  Watertown  and  Groton,  Mass.,  1645  —  1909. 


WHILE  we  have  no  certain  knowledge  of  the  locality  in 
England  whence  Nicholas  Cady  came  to  this  country, 
or  the  exact  date  of  his  advent  here,  yet  one  or  two 
suggestions  are  offered,  either  of  which  may  possibly  be  a  solution 
of  the  matter. 

For  a  time  it  was  throught  that  he  was  a  son  or  brother  of  James 
Cade  of  Hingham,  both  of  which  assumptions  have  been  disproved, 
for  James  Cade  was  not  married  till  1633,  a  date  too  late  for 
Nicholas  to  have  been  his  son,  and  the  will  of  Christopher  Cade 
proved  that  he  had  no  son  Nicholas.  The  search  in  Devon  County, 
Eng.,  failed  to  find  a  Nicholas  Cady,  yet  he  may  have  been  born 
there,  for  the  Registers  give  evidence  that  during  several  years  no 
entries  were  made,  and  in  a  number  of  cases  the  entries  were  not 
legible,  which  fact  leaves  one  with  a  feeling  of  doubt. 

Another  suggestion  is  that  he  came  over  a  minor  in  1630  with 
William  Knapp,  as  a  carpenter's  apprentice,  for  we  know  that 
Nicholas  Cady  was  a  carpenter,  as  was  William  Knapp,  who  came 
from  near  Bury  St.  Mary,  County  Suffolk,  Eng.,  where  he  left  his 
daughter,  Elizabeth,  who  had  married ;  and  as  there  were  Cades  at 
Stoken  Stein  in  the  same  county  at  that  time,  it  is  quite  reasonable 
to  suppose  that  Nicholas  Cady,  a  younger  son,  might  have  been 
bound  out  as  an  apprentice  to  Knapp,  as  was  the  custom  of  the 
time,  and  that  he  might  have  been  allowed  to  migrate  with  his 
master  to  America,  as  many  another  scion  had  done.  We  know 
that  Nicholas  was  very  intimately  connected  with  the  Knapp  family 
for  some  years  before  his  marriage  with  Judith,  the  daughter  of 
William  Knapp ;  which  fact  adds  force  to  the  supposition  that  he 


14  DESCENDANTS   OF   NICHOLAS   CADY. 

might  have  been  a  member  of  the  family  as  an  apprentice.  The 
very  first  undoubted  record  we  have  of  him  is  a  partnership  with 
John,  the  son  of  William  Knapp,  as  follows,  from  Suffolk  Deeds, 
book  i,  p.  66-67,  dated  8  (10)  1645  : 

"Wm  Potter  of  Watertown  granted  unto  Nicholas  Cadey  and 
John  Knapp  his  house  in  Watertown,  house  lott  of  Eight  Acres 
adjoining  unto  John  Bassetts  lott  and  three  Acres  meadow  in  the 
remote  meadow  bounded  with  Isaac  Mixters,  East  &  John  Water- 
bury  west  and  south  &  dividends  on  the  north.  Also  six  Acres 
upland  in  the  Liev  of  the  township  &  a  certaine  ffarme  be  layed  out 
according  to  his  pportion  &  this  was  by  an  absolute  dead  of  sale 
8  (10)  1645 

Witness  That  Purchas,  Wm  Aspenwall,  Acknowleged  before  the 
D:  Gov:" 

The  record  of  the  sale  of  the  above-mentioned  interest  to  John 
Knapp  is  as  follows : 

"Suffolk  Deeds,  book  1,  p.  134.  Nicholas  Cadye  for  valuable 
consideration  did  grant  assigne  &  make  over  unto  John  Knap  of 
Watertown  all  his  right  &  title  in  &  unto  a  certain  house  &  houses 
granted  jointed  to  them  both  by  a  deed  dated  8  (10)  1645  and  this 
was  by  assignment  dated  6  (  )  1650  signed  and  marked  &  dd  in 
presence  of  Wm  Aspenwall  &  Theopilus  Manning." 

Nicholas  Cady  married  Judith  Knapp,  dau.  of  William  of  Water- 
town.     No  date  has  been  found,  but  presumably  about  1648. 

The  following  is  taken  from  Bond's  Watertown  : 

Wm.  Knapp,  a  carpenter,  proprietor,  1636-7,  probably  came  in 
1630  with  Nicholas  Knapp.  William  died  Aug.  30,  1658,  aged 
about  80.     Will  dated  1655  shows  his  heirs  to  have  been  : 

William,  who  d.  Sept.  25,  1676;  m.  (1)  Mary;  m.  (2)  Margaret. 

John,  b.  1624;  m.  May  25,  1660,  Sarah  Young. 

James,  b.  1627  ;  m.  1654,  Elizabeth  Warren. 

Mary  ;  m.  Thomas  Smith  of  Watertown. 

Judith  ;  m.  Nicholas  Cady  of  Watertown. 

Anne ;  m.  Thomas  Philbrick ;  was  dead  and  her  children  took  her 
share. 

Elizabeth  Buttery,  widow,  of  Bury  St.  Mary,  Suffolk,  Eng. ;  her 
share  ^  was  sold  by  Attorney  T.  Danforth  to  Nathaniel  Coolidge. 

William  Knapp  mentions  no  wife  in  his  will,  but  in  the  settlement 
of  his  estate  his  widow,  Priscilla,  received  one-third  of  it,  besides  a 


DESCENDANTS   OF    NICHOLAS   CADY.  1 5 

debt  due  to  her  for  a  sum  loaned  before  marriage  by  Widow  Priscilla 
Akers.  He  married  (probably  between  the  writing  of  his  will  and 
his  death)  Priscilla,  widow  of  Thomas  Akers;  most  of  his  estate 
passed  from  the  possession  of  his  heirs  to  that  of  Nathaniel 
Coolidge.  In  1652  Nicholas  Cady,  with  others,  took  the  oath  of 
fidelity.*  On  5  (2)  1653,  Nicholas  Cady  was  of  the  Train  Band  of 
Watertown,  under  Capt.  Mason.f  December  24,  1667,  Nicholas 
Cady,  carpenter,  of  Watertown,  exchanges  house  and  land  at 
Watertown,  Mass.,  with  John  Clary,  carpenter,  as  follows  : 

"This  indenture  made  the  24  day  of  December  Anne  Domina 
1667  between  John  Clary,  senr  of  the  town  of  Watertown  in  the 
County  of  Middlesex,  carpenter  on  ye  one  part  and  Nicholas  Cady, 
carpenter  of  the  same  Town  and  County  on  the  other  part,  Witnesseth 
That  the  said  John  Clary  in  consideration  of  an  exchange  of  a

town  to  him  in  hand  paid  by  ye  sd  Nicholas  Cady  at  the  sealing  and 
delivery  of  this  whereof  ye  said  John  Clary  doth  acknowledge  the 
receipt  &  himself  therewith  fully  satisfied  &  paid  thereof  Doth  fully

The  above  was  not  placed  on  record  for  many  years,  as  shown  by 
the  following : 

"John  Clary  of  Watertown  appeared  before  me  the  thirty  one 
day  of  July  &  freely  acknowledged  the  writing  to  be  his  act  &  Deed

probably  sister  of   Nicholas.*     She   d.  Dec.  23,  1681,   leaving   no 
children.f 

He  must  have  removed  to  Groton  in  the  early  part  of  1668,  for 
we  find  that  on  Sept.  10,  1668,  Nicholas  Cady  of  Groton,  planter, 
and  wife  Judith,  sold  to  G.  Lawrence  six  acres  of  land  in  Water- 
town  and  five  acres  of  meadow  in  Cambridge. 

On  the  3d  of  the  nth  month,  1669,  a  description  of  his  land  in 
Groton,  Mass.,  was  recorded. 

Dec.  10,  1671,  Nicholas  Cady  was  surveyor  at  Groton.  His  name 
appears  among  others  on  the  Indian  rolls  of  land  grants  that  were 
made  before  the  town  of  Groton  was  burned  by  the  Indians  in  1676. 

The  Indian  war  commenced  Mar.  13,  1676,  and  Groton  was 
assaulted  and  burned  by  them,  and  the  inhabitants  who  had  taken 
refuge  in  the  garrison  house  were  rescued  by  Capt.  Sills  Lee  with 
fifty  dragoons  and  60  carts,  who  had  been  sent  to  rescue  them. 
Many  of  the  inhabitants  sought  shelter  at  Concord,  where  a  meeting 
of  the  former  residents  of  Groton  was  held  Dec.  12,  1677,  to 
consider  the  rebuilding  of  the  town.  Nicholas  Cady's  name 
not  appearing  in  the  list  of  those  who  desired  to  do  so,  and  from 
the  fact  that  on  May  14,  1678,  Nicholas  Cady  of  Cambridge  bought 
of  John  Wincoll  60  acres  of  land  in  Cambridge  for  ^17-ios, 
inclines  one  to  believe  that  he  did  not  return  to  Groton  for  some 
time.  He  was  probably  in  Mr.  Williams'  garrison,  for  in  a  paper  to 
the  General  Court,  dated  at  Groton  March  14,  1676,  it  states  that 
"Daniel  Adams  did  kill  one  Indian  at  Mr.  Williams'  garrison. 
Witness  John  Cady  &  Samuel  Wood.  We  saw  him  fall  to  the 
ground  and  not  raise  up  again,  Nicholas  Cady." 

Jan.  9,  1679,  Nicholas  Cady  conveys  to  his  daughter  Judith,  now 
the  wife  of  Alexander  Rouse,  for  and  in  consideration  of  the  natural 
affection  and  parental  love  for  her,  eleven  acres  of  land  in  Groton, 
Mass. 

June  8,  1680,  he  was  chosen  surveyor. 

December,  1680,  he  is  mentioned  among  lists  of  heads  of  families. 

In  t68i  he  paid  a  tax  of  18s  2d  (only  one  person  in  Groton  was 
taxed  more^T"'

On  12  d,  10  m,  1682,  engaged  with  others  to  pay  his  part  of  a 
£lo  rate. 

On  25  d,  10  m,  1683,  chosen  surveyor  at  town  meeting. 

On  29  d,  11  m,  1683,  purchased  of  the  town  for  5s  fifteen  acres 
of  land. 

On  18  d,  1  m,  1683/4,  is  recorded  a  sale  of  6  acres  of  land  in 
Cambridge  for  ^15  by  Nicholas  Cady  of  Groton,  planter,  to  J. 
Winter.  Also  on  same  date,  for  valuable  consideration  of  money, 
sold  to  Simon  Cooledge,  two  pieces  of  land  in  Watertown,  one  a 
dividend  of  25  acres,  the  other  6  acres ;  guaranteed  by  him  and  his 
beloved  wife  Judith. 

On  Dec.  10,  1685,  Nicholas  Cady  was  chosen  constable. 

On  10  d,  10  m,  1685/6,  was  chosen  surveyor. 

On  9  d,  9  m,  1685,  "it  was  granted  to  Nicholas  Cady  a  small  pes 
of  land  at  the  South  Sid  of  ingin  hill  at  the  Sid  of  his  own  lot  Soo 
he  Dooe  in  no  way  in  trench  upon  the  hye  way." 

In  1673  and  1675  Corporal  Cady  was  appointed  one  of  the  fence 
viewers,  who  no  doubt  was  Nicholas  Cady,  who  had  received  military 
instruction  under  Capt.  Mason  in  the  Train  Band  at  Watertown. 

On  May  12,  1712,  John  Cady  of  Groton  sells  to  Capt.  Jonas 
Prescott  of  G.,  "Several  parcels  of  land  with  half  the  later  Rights 
belonging  to  Old  Nicholas  Cady,  that  doth  now  appear  to  be 
disposed  of."*  On  May  16,  17 12,  John  Cady,  husbandman,  of 
Groton,  sells  several  parcels  of  land,  describing  them  "with  one- 
half  ye  town  rights  formerly  Nicholas  Cadys,  deceased,  or  now 
mine  the  Sd  John  Cady's."t 

We  have  no  record  of  the  date  of  the  death  of  Nicholas  Cady, 
or  that  of  his  wife  Judith,  or  the  place  of  their  demise ;  but  doubt- 
less their  last  days  were  spent  in  Groton,  and  from  the  last  two  items 
above  we  infer  that  Nicholas  Cady  lived  with  his  oldest  son,  John, 
to  whom  fell  a  goodly  portion  of  his  father's  limited  estate.  We 
also  learn  that  he  had  deceased  prior  to  17 12.  Nicholas  Cady 
resided  near  Cady's  Pond,  named  for  him,  located  about  a  mile 
southeasterly  from  the  village  of  Groton,  on  the  Boston  road. 

The  foregoing  account,  simple  and  unpretentious,  is  all  that  the 
records   of    the   past   vouchsafe    to   us   of   the   life    our   ancestor,

Nicholas  Cady,  and  his  wife  Judith.  We  would  gladly  draw  aside 
the  veil  that  enshrouds  so  much  of  their  lives  in  mystery,  but  as  that 
is  impossible  we  are  left  to  read  between  the  lines  of  some  of  the 
probabilities  connected  with  them. 

If  our  surmise  is  correct,  that  Nicholas  Cady  was  a  native  of 
Suffolk  County,  Eng.,  and  came  over  with  William  Knapp  in  1630; 
he  may  have  been  a  connection,  near  or  remote,  of  that  Cade  of 
Suffolk  who  bore  a  Coat  of  Arms,  or  of  that  Edward  Cade  of  Stoken 
Steen,  a  contemporary  in  1634.  After  the  completion  of  his 
apprenticeship  to  William  Knapp  (providing  he  was  an  apprentice) 
he  marries  the  daughter  of  his  master,  and  in  Watertown,  where  he 
first  settles,  all  his  children  are  born ;  then  he  goes  to  Groton,  where 
a  strenuous  life  begins  in  a  new  settlement  with  all  the  incidents 
which  that  statement  brings  to  mind,  to  which  was  added  later  a  life 
in  garrison  with  a  constant  fear  of  savage  assault,  so  imminent  that 
all  sought  safety  in  retreat,  leaving  their  homes  to  be  burned  by  the 
Indian  enemy.  Several  years  later  he  returned  to  spend  his  days  in 
Groton,  where  peace  and  prosperty  is  enjoyed,  surrounded  by  his 
children,  and  honored  by  his  fellow-citizens,  who  appreciate  his 
worth. 

No  lettered  tablets  mark  the  last  resting  place  of  Nicholas  Cady 
and  his  wife  Judith ;  their  only  monuments  were  their  children, 
whose  successful  and  honored  careers  testified  to  the  wealth  of 
mental  endowment  inherited  from  their  parents.

1699  to  1712.     We  find  him  in  Canterbury,  Conn.,  May  28,  1716, 

where  he  bought  real  estate  and  transferred  it  the  same  day  to  his 

son  Jonathan,  with  whom  he  doubtless  arranged  to  live.     As  yet  no 

date  has  been  found  of  the   marriage   of  John   Cady  and  Joanna

he  would  have  been  twenty-five  years  of  age.     The  birth  dates  of 

his  older  children  are  not  recorded,  and  it  is  evident  that  four  other 

children  ought  to  be  added  to  his  family,  not  on  the  records,  for 

there  seems  to  be  no  other  legitimate  place  for  them  among  the 

Cady  families  of  Groton,  where  the  records  are  sadly  lacking  in  full 

dates.     For  reasons  jj.ven  in  the  proper  place,  we  feel  justified  in

Hannah  Cady,  made  his  will  Dec.  31,  1711,  which  was  probated  8, 
7  mo.,  1 71 2,  in  which  a  certain  sum  was  devised  to  Hannah  Cady  or 
her  heirs.  The  inventory  of  James  Cady's  estate  was  ^69  9s.* 
Administration  was  granted  to  John  and  Joseph  Cady  on  estate  of 
their  brother,  James  Cady  of  Groton,  deceased,  June  16,  1691. 
This  is  the  language  of  the  original  court  record ;  in  the  copy  as 
often  quoted  it  is  James  instead  of  Joseph.  It  would  seem  that 
James  Cady  was  of  Watertown,  where  his  first  child,  James,  was 
born,  and  that  a  little  later  he  also  removed  to  Groton,  where  he 
was  living  at  the  time  of  his  death.  The  date  of  death  of  his 
widow,  Hannah,  is  not  known.  Of  James  Cady's  children  James, 
Elizabeth  and  Aaron  are  known  to  be  such,  and  the  others  in  the 
following  list  are  such  with  great  probability,  for  there  seems 
nowhere  else  to  place  them.

1707/8,  where  he  is  called  carpenter.  On  April  14,  17 14,  "Jabez 
Allen  of  Killingly  conveys  to  Daniel  Cady  Sen.,  living  north  of  ye 
town  of  Canterbury  for  ^104  a  tract  of  600  acres  adjoining  Tatnick 
Hill,  same  farm  adjoining  that  of  Richard  Adams."  f  Daniel  Cady 
settled  on  this  farm  with  his  large  family,  and  there  he  spent  his 
days  in  peace  and  prosperity.  He  represented  the  town  of  Canter- 
bury in  the  Connecticut  General  Assembly  in  17 17.  In  1724  he 
gave  land  for  a  burying  place,  which  now  forms  the  original  part  of

during  the  following  year  removed  to  the  Quinnebaug  valley,  now 
Putnam,  Conn.,  where  with  other  members  of  the  Cady  family  he 
was  one  of  the  early  settlers.  He  bought  up  many  grants  of  land 
and  sold  to  other  settlers.  He  removed  from  Old  Killingly  prior  to 
1720  and  located  in  Preston,  Conn.,  where  he  purchased  a  mill 
property  and  conducted  it  till  his  death.  Patience,  his  widow,  was 
of  Preston,  Jan.  27,  1728/9,  when  her  late  husband's  brother,  Capt.

Davis,  b.  Groton,  Mass.,  Aug.  12,  1667.  Capt.  Joseph  Cady  d. 
Killingly,  Conn.,  Dec.  29,  1742.  Date  of  his  wife's  death  has  not 
been  ascertained.  Dr.  Samuel  Green,  the  Groton  historian,  is  the 
authority  for  stating  that  Davis  was  the  surname  of  Joseph  Cady's 
wife,  as  noted  in  the  following  extract,  written  by  him  in  July,  1907, 
to  Judge  F.  A.  Henry  of  Cleveland,  O. : 

"In  my  copy  of  Butler's  History  of  Groton,  p.  391,  I  have  written 
Davis  after  the  name  of  Sarah,  wife  of  Joseph  Cady.  I  probably 
got  it  from  the  Middlesex  Probate  record  office  at  Cambridge.  In 
connection  with  this  matter  I  would  refer  you  to  the  Groton 
Historical  Series  3,  p.  365,  where  you  will  find  some  facts  about  the 
Davis  family." 

Referring  to  the  above  book  as  directed,  we  find  the  name  Sarah 
Davis,  she  being  one  of  a  family  of  eight  children  of  Samuel  and 
Mary  Davis  of  Groton,  Mass. 

Joseph  Cady  removed  to  Groton  with  his  parents  when  he  was  an 
infant,  and  in  that  town  he  spent  his  youth  and  young  manhood ; 
then,  at  the  age  of  ten,  he  began  to  experience  the  strenuous  life  of 
the  early  settlers  of  Massachusetts,  in  the  three  assaults  of  the 
Indians  in  the  month  of  March,  1676,  when  the  inhabitants  sought 
protection  in  their  garrisoned  houses,  which  were  bravely  defended 
till  relieved  by  Capt.  Lee  of  Cambridge,  who  escorted  them  and  their 
effects  to  Concord ;  there  also  he  had  service  with  his  brothers, 
John,  Daniel  and  Nicholas,  in  the  garrison  defense  of  the  town 
during  the  Indian  disturbances  of  1691-2.  After  immediate  danger 
from  the  Indians  was  past,  he  returned  with  the  other  people  who 
had  left  Groton,  who  sought  to  repair  the  damage  they  had 
sustained.  In  1695  he  was  chosen  Constable  of  Groton,  and  was 
granted  permission  by  the  General  Court  to  keep  an  inn  from  1699 
to  1 701.  He  disposed  of  his  real  estate  in  Groton  Feb.  22,  1702/3, 
and  on  Jan.  20,  1703,  he  bought  150  acres  of  land  for  ,£20  of  John 
Chandler  of  Woodstock,  located  in  Aspinock,*  later  called  Killingly, 
now  Putnam,  Conn.,  where  he  removed  his  family  and  where  he 
spent  the  remainder  of  his  life.  This  farm  was  located  north  of  the 
old  Providence  road,  about  one  mile  easterly  from  the  present  city 
of  Putnam.  The  site  of  his  first  abode,  a  log  house,  can  still  be 
identified  on  the  south  side  of   the  farm.     As  an  evidence  of  his

prosperity,  he  built  a  pretentious  house  in  17 14,  which  was  occupied 
by  himself  and  descendants  for  many  years.  The  general  appear- 
ance of  the  house  may  be  judged  from  the  photograph  herewith 
given.  The  writer  visited  the  old  house  in  1895  and  found  it 
deserted  by  tenants  and  fast  going  to  ruin.  It  had  a  frontage  of 
two  stories ;  in  the  center  was  the  conventional  stone  chimney  of 
the  olden  days,  with  a  huge  oven  and  fireplace  in  the  kitchen,  and 
fireplaces  for  the  reception  and  family  rooms.  There  were  six 
rooms  of  varying  size  on  each  floor,  of  ample  proportion  and 
convenience. 

A  short  time  before  his  death  Joseph  Cady  Jun.  sold  this  home- 
stead to  Darius  Session,  Deputy  Governor  of  Rhode  Island,  who 
made  it  his  summer  residence ;  a  few  years  later,  during  the  dark 
days  of  the  Revolution,  this  house  became  a  familiar  resort  for  noted 
men,  including  Washington,  who  is  said  to  have  been  entertained 
there  during  one  of  his  trips  across  the  country.  It  next  came  into 
the  possession  of  Solomon  Cleveland,  whose  brilliant  family  became 
the  center  of  attraction  in  the  old  township.* 

In  the  course  of  time  this  property  changed  from  hand  to  hand, 
and  finally  became  the  home  for  changing  tenants  till  it  was  deserted 
in  1893,  when  it  was  said  to  have  been  the  oldest  standing  house  in 
N.  E.  Connecticut. 

The  ability  of  Joseph  Cady  found  early  recognition  in  his  newly- 
adopted  home,  for  in  1708  he  was  chosen  Lieutenant  of  the  soldiers 
or  Train  Band  of  Aspinock,  and  confirmed  as  such  by  act  of  the 
Colonial  Assembly  in  same  year.|  In  172 1  the  Train  Band  was 
reorganized  and  Joseph  Cady  was  chosen  Captain,  Ephraim  Warren, 
Lieutenant,  and  Thomas  Gould,  Ensign. J  During  his  captaincy 
Luther  Rasle's  war  resulted  in  Lovewell's  expedition  and  the  New 
England  colonies  were  in  a  ferment,  and  Capt.  Joseph  Cady  was  one 
of  the  "three  military  officers"  from  Killingly  who  were  engaged,  as 
stated  by  Miss  Larned.  On  returning  from  one  of  these  perilous 
expeditions  he  was  thus  greeted  by  an  old  squaw  whose  family  he 
had  befriended  :  "  Oh,  Massa  Cady,  I  glad  to  see  you  ;  I  so  glad  I 
could  drink  a  whole  quart  of  rum."§     Capt.  Cady  was  noted  for  his

giant  frame  and  physical  prowess,  and  he  gained  notable  influence 
over  the  Indians,  with  whom  he  had  much  intercourse,  from  the  fact 
that  his  farm  produced  quantities  of  their  sacred  medicinal  herbs,  for 
which  they  came  in  often  quest,  and  as  this  was  considered  neutral 
ground  they  left  their  animosities  behind. 

However,  the  following  tale  relates  an  unfortunate  result  of  a 
friendly  meeting  with  an  Indian  : 

"As  Joseph  Cady  was  one  day  cutting  brush  alone,  an  Indian 
approached  him  from  the  neighboring  forest  and  expressed  a  strong 
desire  to  try  the  skill  of  a  white  man  in  wrestling.  Cady  thought  to 
himself  that  if  he  could  throw  the  fellow  it  might  operate  to  deter 
the  Indians  from  hostilities  against  the  settlements,  and  accordingly 
accepted  the  challenge.  Both  men  struggled  long  and  desperately  ; 
but  Cady  at  last  prevailed  and  the  Indian  was  prostrated.  Unfor- 
tunately he  fell  among  the  brush  which  his  antagonist  had  been 
cutting,  and  one  of  the  sharp  stumps  perforating  his  skull,  he  died 
on  the  spot."* 

Capt.  Joseph  Cady  had  charge  of  the  public  lands  of  Killingly  for 
many  years,  and  was  a  useful  man  of  general  public  affairs,  as  the 
many  town  records  of  him  testify.  On  March  25,  1728,  he  was 
chosen  townsman.  He  was  Deputy,  or  Representative,  from 
Killingly  in  1 731-1734.

and  Sarah  Warner.  The  following  is  the  record  at  Concord,  Mass. : 
"  Samuel  Warner  and  Hannah  Cady,  both  of  Groton,  were  married 
at  Concord  Oct.  15,  1706."  The  inscription  on  the  gravestone  of 
Hannah,  wife  of  Samuel  Warner,  is  that  she  died  April  22,  1775,  in 
her  98th  year,  making  her  born  1677/8.  This  proves  the  statement 
impossible  that  Hannah,  the  widow  of  James  Cady,  married  Samuel 
Warner.  It  also  proves  that  Hannah  was  not  a  daughter  of  James 
and  Hannah  Cady,  who  were  married  June  14,  1678,  and  whose  first 
child,  James,  was  born  nine  months  later,  viz.:  April  1,  1679. 
Granted  that  Hannah  was  a  daughter  of  John  and  Joanna  Cady,  we 
have  a  good  reason  for  her  being  called  Hannah,  as  a  compliment  to 
the  wife,  Hannah  Barron,  who  had  that  same  year  married  James, 
the  brother  of  John  Cady.

11.     Sergt.   John3   Cady,    (James2,   Nicholas1),   b.  Watertown, 

Mass.,  abt.  1680;  m.  abt.  1698,  Elizabeth ;  m.  (2)  Elizabeth, 

probably  dau.  of  John  and  Sarah  (Fitch)  Stoughton,  b.  Feb.  19, 
1692,  and  widow  of  Joseph  Mather,  who  d.  Nov.  7,  17 17.  The  date 
of  neither  marriage  is  known.  Sergt.  John  Cady  d.  Sept.  6,  1751 ; 
his  widow,  Elizabeth  Cady,  d.  Feb.  29,  1760;  both  buried  in  East 
Windsor,  Conn.  The  first  wife  was  probably  the  mother  of  the  five 
oldest  children. 

The  following  account  of  Sergt.  John  Cady  is  taken  from  the  notes 
given  the  compiler  of  this  work  by  Prof.  Daniel  Cady  Eaton  several 
years  before  his  death  : 

"John  Cady,  probably  the  son  of  James.  The  records  of 
transfers  of  land  show  his  residence  in  Groton,  Mass.,  1 699-1 701  ; 
Plainfield,  Conn.,  1704;  Canterbury,  1704-1721;  Tolland,  1721- 
1725;  Willington,  1 725-1 727;  Windsor,  17 28-1 739;  Coventry, 
1740;  Tolland,  1740.  Probably  he  soon  returned  to  Windsor, 
where  he  d.  Sept.  6,  175 1.  One  of  the  Tolland  deeds,  Sept.  6, 
1721,  conveys  to  his  "brother  Daniel  Cady  of  Tolland  254  acres  of 
land  for  ^65."  Another  deed,  from  Daniel  Cady  Jr.  of  Canterbury 
to  "my  brother  John  Cady  of  Willington,"  dated  Aug.  3,  1725^ 
reconveys  the  same  land  for  ^160.  Investigations  in  Windham 
county  show  that  this  Daniel  Cady  Jr.  was  neither  Daniel  Cady  of 
Tatnick  Hill  (Brooklyn)  nor  his  son,  but  was  the  Daniel  Cady  who 
came  from  Groton  to  Aspinock  on  the  Quinnebaug  River  in  1707, 
and  lived  most  of  his  life  in  Killingly.  In  the  History  of  Windham 
County,  Daniel  Cady  of  Aspinock  is  confused  with  Daniel  Cady  of 
Tatnick  Hill,  who  was  a  son  of  Nicholas  Cady  of  Watertown. 
Similarly,  Sergt.  John  Cady  is  confused  by  Bond  and  Savage  with 
his  uncle  John,  son  of  Nicholas  Cady,  for  Joanna,  wife  of  John  Sr., 
was  living  long  after  John  Jr.  had  children  born  by  his  wife  Elizabeth. 
That  this  John  Cady  was  the  son  of  James  Cady  of  Groton  is 
inferred  from  the  following  facts :  He  lived  in  Groton  with  the 
other  Cadys,  and  with  them  came  to  Connecticut.  Aaron,  the  proved 
son  of  James  Cady,  followed  John  to  Canterbury  and  afterwards 
went  likewise  to  Tolland  and  Canterbury.  Cornelius,  grandson  of 
James  and  son  of  James  Jr.,  also  went  to  Coventry.  Dr.  Aaron 
Cady  is  asserted  to  have  been  either  brother  or  cousin  to  Ebenezer, 
son  of  John  Cady,  by  the  descendants  of  both  Dr.  Aaron  and 
Ebenezer,  who  settled  together  in  Columbus  Co.,  N.  Y.     John's  age,

as  given  on  his  tombstone,  conflicts  with  this  belief,  but  ages  on 
tombstones  are  often  wrong,  as  for  instance  :  On  the  tombstone  of 
Daniel  Cady  of  Tatnick  Hill  and  of  Ebenezer,  son  of  this  very  John. 
The  families  of  the  other  sons  of  Nicholas  are  known,  but  in  the 
family  record  of  James  there  is  a  blank  of  seven  years  from  the 
birth  of  James  in  1679  t0  Elizabeth  in  1688,  which  blank  is  the 
only  place  where  the  names  of  John,  Daniel  and  Abigail  can  be 
inserted." 

The  compiler  of  this  work  takes  the  same  view  as  stated  above 
by  Prof.  Eaton,  with  the  exception  that  the  William  whom  the 
Professor  originally  included  in  the  list  was  doubtless  a  son  of 
Joseph  Cady,  a  brother  of  James.  This  opinion  is  shared  by  others 
who  have  given  the  subject  careful  thought. 

During  this  year  (1909)  a  careful  research  under  the  charge  of 
C.  C.  C.  Bradley  of  Manchester,  Iowa,  has  brought  to  light  in  the 
records  of  the  Probate  office  at  Hartford,  Conn.,  the  settlement  of 
John  Cady's  estate.  The  estate  was  appraised  Oct.  1,  1751,  by 
Pelatiah  Bliss,  Thomas  Drake  and  Aaron  Bissell.  Among  things 
mentioned  were  silver  buttons,  ivory-headed  staff,  notes  against  a 
dozen  parties,  a  Bible,  but  no  land.  Administration  was  granted  to 
Elizabeth  Cady  and  John  Smith,  Dec.   1,   1751  : 

"  Distribution  of  the  estate  of  Sergt.  John  Cady,  deceased,  made 
by  us  the  subscribers  under  oath  Jan.  9,  1753.  The  total  amount 
allowed  to  each  is  given  here,  made  up  of  cash,  notes  or  goods. 

To  the  widow,  Elizabeth  Cady,  £271-9-10;  John  Cady, 
.£90-9-1 1  ;  William  Cady,  £90-9-5  ;  Ebenezer  Cady,  .£90-9-11  ; 
Elizabeth  Cady  heirs,  £90-9-11 ;  Deliverance  Cady,  £90-9-11. 

Jan.  9,  1753,  we  tne  subscribers  do  hereby  acknowledge  we  have 
Reed  of  Mrs.  Elizabeth  Cady,  administratrix  to  ye  estate  of  Mr. 
John  Cady,  Deceased  the  parts  set  out  to  us  In  the  foregoing

this  Distribution  accepted,  ordered  to  be  paid.  Test.  Jos.  Talcott, 
clerk." 

In  the  distribution,  Eleazer  signed,  but  his  share  does  not  appear ; 
it  is  probable  that  he  had  been  given  his  share  before  his  father's 
death.     Ephraim  Grant  Jr.  signed  for  his  mother's  estate,  she  having

died  in  1726.  Simon  Kingsbury  signed  for  his  wife  Deliverance 
(Cady).     For  whom  Josiah  Goodrich  signed  I  do  not  know. 

The  estate  of  John  Cady  as  returned  by  the  administratrix 
amounted  to  ,£959-12-9,  less  debts  and  charges  of  ,£145-3-9, 
leaving  a  balance  of  ,£814-9-5.  John,  William  and  Eleazer,  sons 
of  Sergt.  John  Cady,  are  said  to  have  been  in  the  English  army 
under  Gens.  Putnam  and  Rodgers  in  the  French  and  Indian  Wars.

Ephraim  and  Elizabeth  (Barron)  Philbrick.  He  d.  in  1744  in 
Killingly,  Conn.  The  date  of  death  of  his  wife  Abigail  has  not 
been  found.  It  has  been  claimed  that  Daniel  Cady  married  his 
cousin,  Abigail  Cady,  dau.  of  John,  but  the  following  facts  prove 
this  claim  to  be  an  error. 

Ephraim  Philbrick,  a  brother  of  Abigail,  wife  of  Daniel  Cady, 
died  without  issue  in  1775,  and  a  part  of  his  estate  was  inherited 
by  Jedediah,  son  of  Daniel  and  Abigail  Cady,  and  a  nephew  of  said 
Ephraim  Philbrick.  Another  portion  of  said  estate  was  inherited 
by  Moses  Winter,  also  a  nephew,  and  a  son  of  Samuel  and  Elizabeth 
(Philbrick)  Winter.  This  Moses  Winter  was  a  brother  of  Elizabeth 
Winter,   who    married    Samuel    Cady    (Stephen 3,    Capt.   Joseph2, 

Nicholas1)- 

Daniel  Cady  removed  from  Groton,  Mass.,  to  Killingly,  Conn.,  in 
1707,  then  known  as  Aspinock,  and  settled  on  a  farm  adjoining  that 
of  his  uncle,  Capt.  Joseph   Cady,  where  he  resided  till  1721,  when 


32  DESCENDANTS    OF    NICHOLAS   CADY. 

he  is  said  to  have  removed  for  a  short  time  to  Tolland.  He  was  o 
Canterbury  in  1725  and  again  of  Killingly  in  1730.  In  the  spring 
of  1 741  Daniel  Cady  and  son  Timothy  of  Killingly  purchased  of 
Samuel  Chapman  of  Tolland  245  acres  of  land  in  the  town  of 
Stafford,  Conn.  "  Said  land  lieth  toward  the  North  West  corner  of 
said  township.  The  consideration  paid  was  ^430,  current  money. 
The  deed  was  dated  April  21,  1741."  It  was  recorded  March  26, 
1742,  in  Stafford  Town  Records,  vol.  2,  p.  68.  It  is  said  they  were 
the  first  persons  by  the  name  of  Cady  to  own  land  in  Stafford.  Its 
location  as  near  as  can  be  ascertained  was  on  what  is  now  an 
abandoned  road  running  east  and  west,  north  of  what  is  known  as 
Pond  Hill  and  a  mile  or  more  southwest  of  what  is  called  Ziklag 
Schoolhouse,  in  the  northwest  district.* 

After  the  death  of  Daniel  Cady,  the  Stafford  farm  came  into  the 
possession  of  his  sons,  Timothy  and  Jonas,*  for  whose  benefit  the 
farm  had  been  purchased.  Daniel  Cady's  farm  in  Killingly  finally 
passed  into  the  possession  of  William  Larned,  who  built  a  large 
house  thereon,  which  is  still  standing  (1895),  forming  a  part  of  the 
residence  of  William  Plumer.

He  served  as  town  and  society  clerk,  Deputy  to  the  General  Court, 
and  held  for  many  years  the  office  of  Justice.  He  was  a  man  of 
substantial  and  progressive  ideas ;  foremost  in  every  scheme  for 
public  advancement.  He  was  a  constituent  member  of  Pomfret's 
Farmers'  Library  Association  of  1739.  He  built  for  his  daughter 
Damaris,  the  wife  of  Rev.  Pearley  Howe,  the  gambrel-roofed  house 
still  standing  on  Putnam  Heights,  and  sent  his  grandson,  Joseph 
Howe,  to  Yale  College.  He  was  the  first  man  to  set  up  a  coach  or 
wheeled  vehicle."*  He  was  fond  of  reading  and  well  versed  in  the 
books  of  his  day.  The  first  record  book  of  Thompson  Parish  still 
bears  testimony  to  his  carefulness  and  skilled  penmanship.

Groton,  Mass.  His  birth  is  not  found  on  the  Groton  records,  but 
he  was  early  with  the  other  Cadys  from  that  town,  and  there  is  little 
doubt  that  he  was  a  son  of  Capt.  Joseph  Cady,  for  in  fact  there 
seems  no  other  family  to  whom  he  could  well  be  credited.  The 
record  of  his  marriage  has  not  been  found,  but  three  of  his  children 
are  found  in  the  list  of  early  baptisms  in  Killingly.  The  family 
settled  in  Plainfield,  Conn. :

The  statement  in  the  Kingsbury  genealogy  that  William  Cady  died 
prior  to  1747  has  just  been  disproved  by  an  expert  research  under 
the  direction  of  C.  C.  C.  Bradley  of  Manchester,  Iowa,  as  will  be 
seen  in  the  following  briefs  taken  from  the  Plainfield  and  other 
records : 

William  Cady  first  bought  land  in  Plainfield  in  1739  and  sold  it  in 
1740,  in  which  year  his  father  gave  him  land  in  Coventry,  Conn.,  to 
which  town  he  removed  and  where  he  lived  for  some  years.  In 
1748  he  is  back  in  Plainfield,  when  he  buys  land  there.  In  1750  he 
buys  more  land,  which  he  sells  to  son  William  in  1759.  On  Jan.  9, 
1753,  he  signs  for  his  share  of  his  father's  estate,  as  has  been  shown 
in  his  father's  record.  The  last  record  of  land  bought  by  him  is  in 
1762.  In  1772  he  was  of  Ashuelot  Equivalent  (later  Windsor, 
Mass.),  when  he  sells  land  in  Plainfield  to  son-in-law  David  Sheperd. 
In  1777  Timothy  Laraby  of  Windham,  Conn.,  attorney  for  William 
Cady  of  Gageborough,  Mass.,  sells  property  for  him  in  Plainfield.

This  is  the  last  land  record  we  find  of  William  Cady  Sen.  He 
probably  settled  in  that  part  of  the  territory  set  off  to  Dalton,  as  the 
Cadys  are  said  to  have  been  early  in  that  town.  The  family  tradi- 
tion is  that  William  Cady  removed  from  Dalton  or  near  vicinity  to 
Saratoga,  where  he  purchased  a  large  tract  of  land  which  included 
the  present  famous  Saratoga  springs.  The  house  had  been  or  was 
then  used  as  a  hotel,  and  that  himself  and  wife  were  buried  in  an 
old  cemetery  on  or  near  his  property.  Some  15  years  ago  one  of 
his  descendants  visited  the  cemetery,  which  had  been  long  neglected, 
and  the  inscriptions  on  the  gravestones  had  become  unreadable.  It 
is  rather  unlikely  that  William  Sen.  purchased  land  in  Saratoga  after 
1777,  but  it  is  quite  likely  that  his  grandson  Jeremiah  did,  as  he 
moved  to  Saratoga  county,  and  it  may  be  reasonable  that  his  grand- 
father went  with  him. 

From  the  foregoing,  and  the  finding  of  the  record  on  the  church 
books  in  Plainfield  of  the  baptism  of  Eleazer,  son  of  William  and 
Phebe  Cady,  Oct.  15,  1749,  the  long-mooted  question  of  the  parent- 
age of  the  said  Eleazer  is  forever  set  at  rest,  although  the  record  in 
Eleazer  Cady's  Bible  gives  his  birth  as  Sept.  6,  1750,  instead  of 
1749,  but  a  slight  discrepancy  like  this  sometimes  occurs.

He  d.  in  Canaan,  Columbia  county,  N.  Y.,  May  16,  1779.  His 
wife,  a  most  amiable  woman  and  devout  Christian,  survived  her 
husband  many  years,  nearly  to  the  close  of  the  century,  and  rests 
beside  her  husband  and  children  in  the  cemetery  in  Canaan. 

At  the  time  of  his  marriage  he  was  registered  from  Lyme,  Conn. 
He  had  received  from  his  father  in  December,  1736,  a  gift  of  53 
acres  of  land  in  Windsor,  Conn.,  "next  to  the  great  river,"  but 
probably  he  did  not  locate  upon  it,  for  it  seems  that  soon  after 
marriage  he  was  of  Tolland,  where  the  birth  of  his  daughter 
Prudence  is  recorded.  Three  years  later  he  was  of  Lyme,  where 
the  next  two  children  were  born ;  then  he  was  of  Coventry,  where 
the  remaining  children  were  born.  Whether  he  returned  to  Lyme 
is  not  certain,  but  probably  he  did.  He  settled  with  his  family  in 
New  Concord,  now  Canaan,  Columbia  county,  N.  Y.,  about  1764, 
where  he  remained  till  his  death. 

It  is  said  that  all  the  seven  sons  of  the  family  had  service  in  the 
Revolutionary  war,  which  speaks  well  for  their  patriotism.

Stafford  cemetery.  In  April,  1741,  Daniel  Cady,  with  an  older 
brother  of  Jonas,  purchased  a  tract  of  245^  acres  of  land  in  the 
northwest  division  of  Stafford  as  before  noted.  Daniel,  the  father, 
bought  the  land  for  the  benefit  of  two  of  his  sons,  Jonas  and 
Timothy.  As  the  deed  was  not  recorded  till  March,  1742,  it  is 
presumed  they  did  not  remove  to  Stafford  till  that  year. 

In  Stafford  Records,  vol.  2,  p.  131,  we  find  that  Daniel  Cady 
transferred  his  interest  in  the  245  £  acres  to  his  son  Jonas  as  follows : 
"In  consideration  of  ,£250  current  money,  well  and  truly  paid  by 
my  well  and  beloved  son,  Jonas  Cady  of  Stafford,  the  one  moiety 
one  half  part  of  a  Certain  Tract  or  parcle  of  Land  Containing  Two 
hundred  and  forty  five  acres  and  half."  This  deed  was  given  Jan.  9, 
1744.  It  would  seem  that  the  two  brothers  occupied  the  land  jointly 
till  1752,  when  we  find  on  the  Town  Records,  vol.  3,  p.  279,  that 
each  deeded  to  the  other  a  half  interest  in  the  farm  in  consideration 
of  ;£io6  in  bills  of  public  credit,  thus  becoming  separate  owners. 
The  writer,  with  Rev.  C.  C.  Lyon,  visited  this  old  farm  in  August, 
1909.  It  is  located  on  a  branch  road  turning  off  from  the  Lull 
district  road  near  the  residence  of  Mr.  Kellogg,  which  leads  to  the 
farm  of  Harlow  Kibbe  on  the  west.  Most  of  the  road  is  now  closed 
as  it  is  not  in  condition  for  public  travel,  as  the  old  Cady  place  is 
now  without  a  tenant  and  has  largely  grown  up  to  brush.  The 
house,  built  by  the  brothers  Jonas  and  Timothy  before  1750,  was, 
according  to  tradition,  a  large  structure  two  stories  in  front  and  one 
in  the  rear,  much  like  the  illustration  of  the  Capt.  Joseph  Cady 
house  as  found  in  this  volume.  We  found  the  ancient  foundation  on 
which  it  was  built,  suited  for  a  large  building,  and  where  a  second 
and  smaller  house  was  erected  which  is  now  in  utter  ruins.  The  farm, 
was  one  of  the  most  rocky  in  Stafford ;  the  old  stone  walls  laid  up 
for  fences  still  remain  in  evidence  of  the  great  labor  expended  by  the 
brothers.  Why  they  located  on  such  hard  soil  is  a  wonder,  when 
much  better  land  was  cheap  and  available,  yet  like  most  of  the  Cady 
tribes,  they  were  thrifty  and  made  a  success  of  life.  In  Oct.,  1759, 
the  General  Court  of  Connecticut  appointed  and  commissioned 
Jonas  Cady  Ensign  of  the  13th  Company  of  the  5th  Regt. 

According  to  the  tradition,  the  families  of  Jonas  and  Timothy 
Cady,  with  others  in  the  neighborhood,  often  repaired  at  nightfall  to 
the  large  house  which  stood  on  the  present  site  of  the  Dea.  Alden 
Davis   house  in   Somers,  for  mutual  protection   against   the  roving

bury, Conn.,  Dec.  7,  1718;  m.  Nov.  8,  1738,  No.  Stonington,  Conn., 
Ann  Palmer.*  In  reply  to  the  inquiry  about  the  parentage  of  Ann 
Palmer,  who  married  Aaron  Cady,  Judge  Wheeler,  author  of  the 
History  of  Stonington,  Conn.,  says  that  by  mistake  he  left  out  her 
name,  and  that  she  was  the  daughter  of  Jonathan  and  Mercy 
(Manning)  Palmer,  and  sister  of  Prudence,  who  married  Ebenezer 
Cady,  both  being  married  at  the  same  time. 

Immediately  after  marriage  Aaron  Cady  settled  in  Coventry, 
Conn.,  as  indicated  by  this  entry  on  the  Coventry  records,  Nov.  29, 

1738. 

"Aaron  Cady  of  Coventry,  to  son  Aaron  Cady  Jr.,  and  Ann  Cady 
his  wife,  20  acres  for  ^20." 

The  next  entry  is  as  follows  : 

"Jan.  23,  1739/40,  Aaron  Cady  and  his  wife  Annah  Cady  of 
Coventry  to  Ebenezer  Stiles  of  Coventry  ^115  for  20  acres." 

On  April  9,  1739,  we  find  Aaron  Cady  in  Tolland,  and  on  June 
23,  1740,  he  had  a  deed  of  land  in  Tolland  from  his  father.  The 
last  record  of  him  in  Tolland  is  in  1741.  We  find  him  in  Canter- 
bury, Dec.  7,  1 746,  when  the  birth  of  his  son  Nathaniel  is  recorded ; 
and  lastly  there  in  1752,  when  his  dau.  Elizabeth  was  born.  Shortly 
after  this  he  seems  to  have  removed  to  Stonington,  Conn.  In  a 
letter  from  J.  Cady  Brown  of  Minaville,  N.  Y.,  written  in  1868  to 
Prof.  D.  C.  Eaton,  he  says  his  great-grandfather,  Aaron  Cady,  "was 
a  doctor  and  died  in  Groton  or  Stonington,  Conn.  He  married 
Ann  Palmer,  had  children,"  etc.,  as  given  below.  Some  of  the 
dates  I  have  added  from  other  sources.

Her  great-grandfather,  John  Winter,  came  from  England  in  1633  and 
settled  in  Watertown,  Mass.,  his  occupation  being  that  of  a  tanner. 
Two  of  his  sons,  Richard  and  Thomas,  and  a  daughter,  Alice, 
remained  in  London,  from  which  fact  it  is  inferred  that  he  also  was 
of  that  city.  He  d.  April  14,  1662,  at  the  age  of  90,  leaving  his 
property  to  his  son  John,  who  settled  at  Cambridge  Farms,  where  he 
d.  Jan.  18,  1690.  SamueU  Winter,  b.  March  16,  1684/5,  settled 
early  in  Killingly,  where  he  became  a  large  land  owner.  He  married 
Elizabeth  Philbrick  in  Groton,  Mass.,  Nov.  18,  1690,  dau.  of 
Ephraim3  Philbrick,  John2,  Thomas1.  This  Thomas  came  from 
Lincolnshell,  England,  in  1630,  and  settled  in  Watertown.  The  wife 
of  John2  Philbrick  was  Ann  Palmer.  The  wife  of  Ephraim^  Phil- 
brick and  mother  of  Elizabeth,  wife  of  Samuel  Winter,  was  Elizabeth, 
dau.  of  Ellis2  Barron,  Ellis1.  The  elder  Ellis  Barron  was  of  Water- 
town  before  1641,  where  he  was  Constable  and  Selectman.  His  son 
Ellis  settled  in  Lancaster,  Mass.,  and  married  Hannah,  dau.  of 
Timothy  Hawkins,  who  came  to  Watertown  in  1635. 

On  Feb.  3,  1748/9,  Samuel  Cady  received  from  his  father,  as  a 
part  of  his  portion,  a  gift  by  deed  of  seven  acres  of  land,  situated 
on  the  county  road  from  Woodstock  to  Providence,  adjoining  to 
land  of  Benjamin  Cady.  June  4,  1756,  Samuel  Cady  bought  of 
William  Farmer  of  Killingly  60  acres  of  land  with  dwelling,  etc.,  for 
^3000  in  bills  of  public  credit,  according  to  old  tenor.*     He  seems

to  have  been  a  well-to-do  farmer  of  those  days.  He  disposed  of 
his  real  estate  in  Killingly  and  removed  to  Shutesbury,  Mass.,  in 
1764,  where  he  bought  a  farm  just  west  of  the  old  center  and  where 
he  spent  the  remainder  of  his  life.  In  July,  1890,  the  writer  visited 
Shutesbury  and  the  old  farm  where  Samuel  Cady  lived,  and  later 
where  Robert  Allen,  who  married  his  daughter,  Rhoda,  also  lived  a 
few  years.  The  old  house  had  been  taken  down  about  two  years 
previously,  leaving  the  stone  foundations  and  the  cellar  to  mark  the 
site.  The  little  garden  plot  surrounded  by  a  stout  stone  wall  still 
remained.  Dr.  White  bought  the  farm  about  1830  and  lived  there 
many  years ;  at  the  time  of  my  visit  the  farm  was  owned  by  Martin 
Newell. 

Samuel  Cady,  like  his  grandfather,  Capt.  Joseph  Cady,  was  not 
lacking  in  patriotism  when  his  country  needed  his  services,  for  not 
only  himself  but  his  three  sons  served  in  the  army.  His  daughter, 
Rhoda,  grandmother  of  the  writer,  used  to  relate  that  her  father  was 
three  years  in  the  army,  and  that  her  mother  and  daughters  did  duty 
on  the  farm  in  his  absence.  The  services  of  Samuel  Cady  and  his 
sons,  Jason,  Jeremiah  and  Samuel,  are  found  on  the  Revolutionary 
records  at  the  statehouse  in  Boston.  There  is  there  a  receipt,  evi- 
dently in  the  handwriting  of  the  elder  Samuel,  for  a  bounty  of  jQgo 
received  by  him  for  three  years'  service  in  the  army,  dated  April  6, 
1781. 

Further  evidence  is  found  that  the  elder  Cady  enlisted  as  a  private 
in  Lt.  John  Trask's  company  of  Col.  David  Leonard's  regiment, 
Feb.  26,  1777  ;  was  in  service  44  days  and  marched  to  Ticonderoga, 
and  was  discharged  April  10,  1777;  that  he  enlisted  again  in  the 
same  year,  Aug.  22,  in  Capt.  Moses  Harvey's  company,  Col. 
Woodbury's  regiment,  and  was  discharged  Nov.  22,  1777.  Of  his 
personal  service,  other  than  the  above,  I  have  no  knowledge.  The 
foregoing  has  been  given  for  the  benefit  of  any  descendants  of 
Samuel  Cady  who  may  desire  to  become  Sons  or  Daughters  of  the 
Revolution,  the  writer  having  been  admitted  to  the  Society  of  the 
American  Revolution  on  the  above  evidence.

1823.  He  is  buried  at  Wadham's  Mills  in  Westport;  his  gravestone 
says  he  d.  1828,  which  is  an  error. 

He  remained  in  Killingly  till  soon  after  the  commencement  of 
the  Revolution,  when  he  removed  to  Reading  or  Windsor,  Vt. 
About  1803  he  removed  with  his  sons  to  Fair  Haven,  Vt.  After 
some  years  he  removed  to  Westport,  N.  Y.,  where  he  died.  The 
first  eight  children  were  born  in  Killingly,  Conn.,  and  the  last  three 
probably  in  Vermont.  The  Vermont  Revolutionary  Rolls  credit  him 
with  eight  months'  service  in  the  Revolutionary  war,  and  his  grave- 
stone says  he  was  an  old  soldier.

collector  and  keeper  of  the  keys  in  Windsor,  Vt.,

His  name  appears  in  a  list  of  a  company  of  dragoons 
as  a  private  under  Capt.  Noah  Cady  of  Woodstock, 
organized  in  1783  f,  and  had  prior  service  in  the 
warj.  He  later  went  to  Fair  Haven  with  his  father. 
His  later  history  remains  unknown. 

ii.  Jonathan,  b.  May  19,  1760;  d.  Westport,  N.  Y.,  Sept.

James  Leach  had  service  in  the  Revolutionary  war  for  six  months 
as  private,  from  June  26,  1776,  in  Capt.  Asa  Bacon's  Co.,  Col. 
Chester's  Regt. ;  also  two  months  in  1777  in  Capt.  Ephraim  Lyon's 
Co.,  Col.  Barton's  Regt. ;  and  four  months  as  Sergeant  in  Capt. 
Joseph  Durke's  Co.,  Col.  Levi  Wells'  Regt.  He  was  in  the  battle  of 
White  Plains,  and  received  a  pension,  as  did  his  wife  for  this  service. 

Mr.  Leach  removed  to  Pawlet,  Vt.,  in  1780,  and  settled  on  the 
Willard  Tract,  which  was  granted  by  Benning  Wentworth,  located 
on  the  east  side  of  the  old  bridle  path  running  from  Bennington  to 
Danby,  which  path  was  surveyed  in  1773  and  laid  out  for  a  highway 
in  the  following  year.  He  was  a  carpenter  and  joiner,  but  he  first 
built  a  log  house  for  himself.  He  built  the  first  framed  house  in 
town  in  1785.  He  contracted  to  build  about  40  barns  at  $40  each? 
taking  the  timber  from  the  stump  and  preparing  it  himself.  He 
built  the  first  brick  house  in  town  in  1804,  making  and  burning  the 
brick  himself.  This  house  is  still  standing  in  good  condition.  He 
was  the  chorister  of  the  M.  E.  church  for  some  years,  Selectman 
from  1800  to  1809,  and  represented  the  town  for  several  terms  in  the 
Vermont  Legislature.  Mr.  Leach,  being  a  man  of  forceful  character, 
did  much  to  shape  the  affairs  of  the  town  in  early  days.  Both  he 
and  his  wife  bravely  endured  many  hardships  in  their  early  pioneer 
life,  but  succeeded  in  establishing  a  fine  home  for  themselves  and 
children.  For  some  years  the  nearest  grist  mill  was  at  Bennington, 
thirty  miles  away.     Mrs.  Leach  was  an  adept  in  the  art  of  weaving,

and  wrought  from  wool  and  linen  for  table  and  bedding  purposes 
many  elaborate  patterns  so  highly  prized  in  these  days.  In  1815, 
aged  and  infirm,  they  gave  their  property  to  their  three  sons  to  be

daughter  Eunice  the  sum  of  $800  in  cash.

the  records  of  Plainfield,  Conn.,  and  near  vicinity  have  thus  far 
failed  to  reveal  the  date  or  to  wnom  William  Cady  was  married,  but  i  t 
is  very  probable  that  he  was  married  before  he  left  Plainfield  to 
settle  in  Dalton,  Mass.  It  is  probable  that  he  went  to  Dalton  with 
his  father  about  1771,  but  we  have  but  one  definite  record  of  him 
there,  and  that  is  the  date  of  his  death  on  the  Dalton  records  as 
June  25,  1790,  in  his  60th  year.  We  feel  justified  in  applying  this 
record  to  him  as  there  was  no  other  one  of  the  several  William 
Cadys  of  the  locality  to  whom  the  date  could  refer.  The  widely 
separated  dates  of  birth  of  his  children  allow  us  to  suppose  that  he 
was  twice  married.  He  is  said  to  have  been  one  of  the  eleven 
proprietors  of  the  town  of  Naples,  Ontario  Co.,  N.  Y.,  in  which 
township  Canandaigua  is  now  located.

Abigail    Lawrence,  dau.  of   Thomas.     He    m.   (2)   Letitia  , 

who  survived  him.  We  learn  from  the  Registry  of  Deeds  at  Pitts- 
field,  Mass.,  that  Jeremiah  Cady  of  Plainfield,  Conn.,  bought  land  in 
Windsor,  Mass.,  July  6,  1767,  of  William  Williams  for  ,£15.  On 
Dec.  5,  1769,  he  is  said  to  be  of  Windsor,  where  he  is  recorded  as 
buying  land  there.  From  that  date  till  1780  there  are  eight  entries 
of  land  transactions  by  Jeremiah  Cady  of  Windsor.  On  Sept.  1, 
1780,  Jeremiah  Cady  of  Dal  ton  deeds  land  in  that  town  to  son 
Jeremiah  Cady  Jr.,  in  presence  of  William  Cady  3d  and  Phineas 
Cady,  sons  of  Jeremiah.  He  doubtless  reckoned  his  father  as 
William  1st,  his  brother  as  William  2d,  and  his  son  as  William  3d. 
The  last  entry  is  Feb.  24,  1786,  when  Jeremiah  Cady  sells  land  in 
Dalton. 

Jeremiah  Cady  and  four  of  his  sons,  at  least,  sustained  their 
patriotism  by  serving  their  country,  for  he  and  sons  William  and 
Phineas  marched  April  22,  on  the  Alarm,  to  Cambridge,  where  the 
father  was  Major  in  Col.  John  Patterson's  Regt.  till  Aug.  1,  1775, 
and  his  two  sons  were  privates  during  the  same  time.  Jeremiah 
Cady  Jr.,  the  boy  of  15,  enlisted  in  the  same  regiment  June  3  of 
same  year  and  served  two  months  and  three  days.  Another  son, 
Warren  Cady,  enlisted  Oct.  12,  1781,  on  an  alarm,  and  served  18 
days.  The  sons  William  and  Phineas  both  enlisted  in  the 
Continental  army  and  served  for  several  years. 

Jeremiah  Cady  died  in  Saratoga  in  1798.  His  son  John  was 
granted  letters  of  administration  Nov.  5,  1798.*  The  after  history 
of  this  family  has  not  been  ascertained  by  the  compiler,  save  that  of 
Jeremiah  Jr.

land  records  at  Pittsfield,  Mass.,  we  find  that  Eleazer  Cady  of 
Partridgefield  (now  Peru),  Mass.,  bought  land  in  Dalton,  Mass.,  Sept. 
l7>  1 779-  On  April  12,  1803,  Eleazer  Cady  of  Partridgefield  bought

bought  land  in  Hinsdale,  Mass.  He  assisted  in  building  the  Baptist 
church  in  Hinsdale  in  1797,  and  became  a  deacon  of  that  church. 
He  had  service  in  the  Revolutionary  war  as  follows  :  Private  in  Capt.

Rev.  Isaac  Foster  was  the  first  minister  of  the  Congregational 
church  in  West  Stafford.  Hezekiah  Cady  and  his  wife  were  both 
members  of  this  church,  and  Mr.  Cady  became  one  of  the 
deacons.  The  church  was  located  on  what  was  then  known  as 
Meeting  House  Hill.  Rev.  Isaac  Foster  was  first  settled  on  the  old 
Congregational  platform.  After  a  few  years  he  changed  his  faith 
and  became  a  Universalist.  The  church  became  divided  and  so  also 
was  the  Cady  family  in  their  belief.  Hezekiah  and  his  wife  became 
Universalists,  Jesse  and  Asa  remained  Calvinistic,  and  Jedediah 
became  Methodist.

b.  Stafford,  Conn.,  1751  ;  m.  1773,  Jerusha,  dau.  of  Moses  Chapin 
of  Somers,  Conn.  He  d.  May  8,  1810;  she  d.  July  22,  1829.  He 
resided  in  West  Stafford,  Conn.,  upon  or  near  the  homestead  of  his 
father  Jonas.  The  Stafford  Town  Records,  vol.  4,  p.  186,  show 
record  of  deed  from  Jonas  to  Jesse  Cady  of  an  estimated  fifty  acres 
for  the  consideration  of  £50  "for  and  in  consideration  of  love, 
goodwill  and  affection,  which  I  have  and  do  bear  to  my  son  Jesse 
Cady  of  Stafford,  and  for  other  good  consideration,  me  moving 
thereunto."     The  above  deed  is  dated  April  12,  1773. 

Jesse  Cady  filled  many  positions  of  trust.  He  was  elected  Repre- 
sentative of  the  town  of  Stafford  for  eleven  consecutive  years.  He 
was  appointed  Justice  of  the  Peace  in  1783.  In  May,  1795,  he 
became  Judge  of  the  Court  of  Common  Pleas  for  Tolland  County, 
also  Judge  of  Probate  for  the  District  of  Stafford,  which  included  at 
that  time  the  towns  of  Stafford,  Somers,  Ellington,  Tolland,  Willing- 
ton  and  Union.  He  was  also  appointed  State  Attorney,  May  17, 
1798.  These  offices  he  held  until  his  death.  For  many  years  he 
served  as  deacon  of  the  Congregational  church  in  West  Stafford.  It 
is  related  that  one  of  the  first  official  acts  which  Jesse  was  called 
upon  to  perform  after  his  appointment  as  Justice,  was  to  unite  a 
couple  in  marriage.  His  brother  Hezekiah,  thinking  to  surprise  and 
confuse  him,  came  to  the  wedding  as  a  self-invited  guest  in  his  work- 
ing garb  from  the  field.  Jesse  was  equal  to  the  occasion  and  turned 
the  surprise  upon  his  brother  by  saying  that  it  was  customary  to 
have  prayer  offered  at  the  close  of  wedding  ceremonies,  and  invited 
Hezekiah  to  pray.

West  Stafford,  Conn.,  Oct.  6,  1759;  m-  Dec.  27,  1782,  Rhoda,  dau.

10,  1 83 1 ;  she  d.  May  11,  1844.  They  were  buried  in  the  old 
cemetery  in  West  Stafford  Street.  Jedediah  Cady  was  born  in  West 
Stafford,  on  the  original  homestead  purchased  by  his  grandfather, 
Daniel  Cady,  in  1741.  He  was  probably  named  for  his  uncle 
Jedediah,  who  lived  and  died  in  Killingly.  He  enlisted  in  the  war 
of  the  Revolution  Jan.  7,  1778,  in  the  company  of  Capt.  Roswell 
Grant  of  East  Windsor,  Conn.  He  served  nearly  three  years  and 
was  honorably  discharged  Dec.  9,  1780.  The  pistol  that  he  used 
during  the  service  is  now  owned  by  one  of  his  grandsons.  About  two 
years  after  his  discharge  from  military  service  Jedediah  Cady  married 
Rhoda  Holmes.  Her  half  brother,  John  Holmes,  married  Esther, 
dau.  of  Timothy  Cady.  Her  sister,  Sarah  Holmes,  married  Solva 
Converse,  and  another  sister,  Mollie  Holmes,  married  Abner  Cady. 
By  these  marriages  the  Cady,  Converse  and  Holmes  families  of 
Stafford  first  became  related. 

Jedediah  and  Rhoda  Cady  settled  in  the  immediate  vicinity  and 
in  the  same  district  of  his  birthplace.  He  first  purchased  17^  acres 
of  land  of  James  Morris,  March  13,  1783.  On  Oct.  ro,  1786,  he 
purchased  of  Isaac  Cushman,  80  acres  of  land  for  ^200.  This 
farm  is  located  on  the  east  side  of  the  road  from  old  West  Stafford 
Street,  or  Meeting  House  Hill,  so  called,  to  South  Wilbraham,  now 
Hampden,  Mass.,  the  second  farm  south  of  the  state  line.  This 
farm  has  since  been  known  as  the  Walter  Temple  place.  The  farm 
north  of  this,  adjoining  the  state  line,  was  owned  by  his  brother, 
Dea.  Hezekiah  Cady,  and  afterwards  by  his  son,  John  Cady.  Here 
it  was  that  all  the  children  of  Jedediah  Cady  were  born,  with  the 
possible  exception  of  Sarah  and  Olive.  April  15,  1807,  he 
purchased  of  Stephen  Scott,  the  Tray  Hollow*  farm  of  75  acres* 
bounded  and  described  as  follows  :  "  North  on  said  Jedediah  Cady's 
land,  west  on  Elijah  Town's,  south  on  Daniel  Carpenter's  and 
Ebenezer  Harris',  and  east  on  Noah  Trask's  land."  The  amount 
paid  was  $1300.  The  family  removed  to  Tray  Hollow  in  the  spring 
of  1808.  After  removing  to  Tray  Hollow  Jedediah  Cady  "Kept 
Tavern  "  for  a  time.     The  house  was  a  long  one-story  building  with

an  attic,  standing  on  the  west  side  of  the  road.     Since  his  time  it 

has  been  removed   and  replaced    by  a  more  modern  dwelling.     A 

perennial  spring  on    the  hillside  furnished  an   abundant   supply  of 

running  water  for  the  house  and  barn.     The  out-buildings  were  two 

barns,  a  cider  mill  and  a  "Still  House"  for  stilling  cider  brandy. 

The  tavern  sign  was  a   square  one,  suspended   between  two  posts 

opposite  the  house,  having  the  picture  of  a  lion  on  one  side  and  on 

the   other   "Travelers'    Home,"  with    the    significant    motto,  "Pay 

to-day,  trust  to-morrow."     As  was  the  custom  of  those  days,  patrons 

were  served  with  rum  or  cider  brandy  in  moderate  quantity.     As 

may  be  supposed,  Jedediah  Cady  did  not  allow  his  house  to  become 

a  low  resort,  for  he  was  an  ardent  Methodist  and  his  house  was  a 

meeting  place  for  the  brethren,  where  frequent  services  were  held, 

and  a  favorite  stopping  place  for  the  circuit  preacher.     Aunt  Rhoda 

Cady  was  a  model  cook,  which  fact  added  much  to  the  fame  of  the 

Tavern,  and  her  delicious  gingerbread  became  famous,  and  its  sale 

on  "Training  Days"  added  many  an  honest  penny  to  the  household 

treasury.     It  is  said  that  her  skill  as  a  cook  has  been  inherited  by 

her  daughters  and  granddaughters  down  to  the  present  time.

Pomfret,  Conn.,  Dec.  25,  1739;  m.  Oct.  1,  1760,  Sarah  Hendrick. 
He  enlisted  as  a  soldier  in  the  Revolutionary  war  July  18,  1782, 
served  till  the  close  of  the  war  and  was  discharged  in  Nov.,  1782. 
He  went  from  Pomfret,  Conn.,  and  settled  in  Alstead,  N.  H.,  in 
1763.  The  record  of  Isaac  Cady's  family  is  not  as  complete  as 
could  be  desired  ;  it  also  seems  evident  that  the  births  of  two  sons 
at  least  did  not  have  their  record  on  the  Alstead  books,  viz. :  Noah 
and  Calvin,  so  with  great  probability  they  have  been  added  to  the 
list  here,  for  we  find  that  Isaac,  Noah,  Jacob,  Calvin  and  Lavina  all 
settled  in  nearby  towns  in  Vermont  at  an  early  date  soon  after 
marriage,  which  fact  lends  strength  to  the  idea  of  their  close  relation- 
ship. The  dates  of  birth  of  several  of  the  children  are  tentative, 
but  probably  very  nearly  correct.

and  name  of  wife  unknown.  He  was  of  Gilsum,  N.  H.,  for  a  time, 
and  later  removed  to  Weathersfield,  Vt.  In  the  history  of  Gilsum,

Noah  and  possibly  other  children,  of  whom  no  record  has  come  to

141.  Jeremiah s  Cady,  (Samuel 4,  Stephens,  Capt.  Joseph 2, 
Nicholas1),  b.  Killingly,  Conn.,  July  17,  1752;  m.  Nov.  12,  1772, 
Hannah  Warner,  dau.  of  Aaron  and  Ruth  (Sheldon)  Warner  of 
Amherst,  Mass.,  bapt.  June  30,  1754.  Her  grandfather  was  Jacobs, 
Joseph2,  Andrew1  Warner,  the  emigrant  to  Cambridge,  Mass.,  1632, 
of  Hartford  1639,  and  an  early  settler  at  Hadley,  Mass.  Jeremiah 
Cady  d.  Hadley,  Mass.,  June  4,  1848 ;  his  wife  d.  abt.  1829. 

Jeremiah  Cady  removed  with  his  parents  from  Killingly,  Conn.,  to 
Shutesbury,  Mass.,  in  1764.  He  belonged  to  a  race  noted  for  its 
military  spirit,  and  early  imbibed  the  spirit  that  was  stirring  the 
minds  of  men  to  action.  At  the  age  of  twenty-one  he  made  a  visit 
to  Boston,  in  December,  1773,  and  chanced  to  attend  that  remark- 
able meeting  at  the  Old  South  Church  which  set  the  pace  for  the 
American  Spirit  of  Independence  in  the  determination  not  to  allow 
tea  to  be  forced  upon  them  against  their  will.  Fired  by  the  im- 
passioned speech  of  Samuel  Adams,  he  accepted  the  invitation  to 
join  the  immortal  tea  party  that  consigned  the  obnoxious  cargo  of 
tea  into  the  hands  of  Neptune  on  the  night  of  December  16,  1773. 
In  after  years  he  often  recited  the  incidents  of  his  connection  with 
that  tea  party,  and  although  his  name  does  not  appear  in  the 
imperfect  list  which  has  been  published,  there  is  no  doubt  that  he 
was  a  member  of  the  party,  for  he  was  a  man  of  probity  and  not 
given  to  vain  boasting,  and  with  others  his  name  was  carefully 
concealed  for  politic  reasons. 

The  hill  town  of  Shutesbury  was  not  lacking  in  its  expression  of 
patriotism,  and  on  one  occasion  when  the  Cadys  and  others  had 
planted  a  liberty  pole,  Mr.  Hill,  the  rank  Tory  minister  of  the  town, 
came  and  ordered  the  rebels  to  disperse  ;  whereupon  he  was  ordered 
himself  to  go  home,  and  refusing  to  do  so,  young  Jeremiah  Cady 
seized  him  and  threw  him  a  rod  in  the  home  direction,  when  the 
offending  one  deemed  it  prudent  to  obey.  Young  Cady  possessed  a 
giant's  strength,  and  the  diminutive  Mr.  Hill  was  but  a  toy  in  his 
hands.  In  1778  the  Tory  Hill  found  it  convenient  to  leave  town, 
to  the  great  relief  of  every  patriotic  citizen. 

With  such  a  beginning,  we  are  not  surprised  to  find  Jeremiah 
Cady  early  at  the  front  in  his  country's  service.  The  archives  at  the 
State  House  in  Boston  show  the  following : 

"Jeremiah  Cady,  Shutesbury,  Capt.  Dickinson's  Co.,  Col.  Benj. 
Ruggles'  Regt.,  received  for  advanced  pay,  dated  Charlestown,  July 


DESCENDANTS   OF    NICHOLAS   CADY.  119 

27>  1775-"  Also,  "Private,  same  Co.  and  Regt.  on  muster  roll, 
dated  Aug.  i,  1775,  enlisted  May  15,  1775,  served  2  mos.  21  days." 
Also,  "Company  return  dated  Prospect  Hill,  Sept.  28,  1775." 
Also,  "  Order  for  bounty  coat,  or  its  equivalent  in  money ;  dated 
Camp  near  Prospect  Hill,  Oct.  25,  1775." 

He  was  at  the  battle  of  Bunker  Hill,  and  it  is  a  tradition  in  the 
family  that  after  six  men  had  been  shot  down  at  a  certain  cannon 
he  quickly  volunteered  to  take  the  position  and  kept  it,  doing  good 
service  without  harm  to  himself.  The  length  of  his  service  in  the 
army  is  not  definitely  known,  although  his  family  assert  that  it  was 
during  the  war. 

Soon  after  1800  he  moved  with  his  family  to  Friendship, 
Allegany  Co.,  N.  Y.,  then  1  wilderness.  A  few  years  later  he  moved 
to  Henrietta,  Monroe  Co.,  N.  Y.  Then  the  country  was  just  being 
settled  and  no  place  had  been  provided  for  Sunday  service ;  so  after 
getting  their  log  house  in  order  Mrs.  Cady,  who  with  her  husband 
was  deeply  religious,  observed  to  her  neighbors  that  it  did  not  seem 
right  to  spend  Sunday  without  some  devotional  service.  She  invited 
them  to  her  house,  which  invitation  was  gladly  accepted ;  Mr.  Cady 
opened  the  meeting  with  prayer  and  Mrs.  Cady  read  portions  of 
Scripture,  and  others  took  part.  This  custom  was  continued  till  a 
Congregational  church  was  organized  in  1818.  Jeremiah  Cady's 
name  appears  as  one  of  its  members.  He  later  removed  to  Cuba, 
Monroe  Co.,  to  live  with  one  of  his  children,  but  after  the  death  of 
his  wife  he  returned  to  Massachusetts  and  spent  his  last  days  with 
his  daughter  Salome,  Mrs.  David  Cook,  in  Hadley,  where  he  was 
kindly  cared  for  in  his  extreme  old  age.

iii.  Rev.  John  Clarence  Allen,  D.  D.,  b.  July  28,  1848;  m. 
1874,  Julia  I.  Johnson.  Dr.  Allen  comes  from  an 
ancestry  distinguished  for  religious  constancy.  His 
ancestors  for  generations  were  Baptists,  and  in 
his  early  home  he  was  surrounded  by  religious  in- 
fluences which  shaped  his  future  career.  He 
received  his  preparatory  education  in  Wallingford 
high  school,  and  in  Black  River  Academy,  Ludlow, 
Vt.,  and  was  graduated  with  highest  oratorical 
and  other  honors  at  Madison  (now  Colgate)  Uni- 
versity, Hamilton,  N.  Y.,  in  1S74.  He  entered 
upon  his  first  pastorate  in  Newark,  N.  Y.,  in  1875, 
followed  in  order  of  time  by  pastorates  in  Elizabeth, 
N.  Y.,  Hanson  Place  Baptist  church,  Brooklyn, 
N.  Y.,  and  Bergen  Baptist  church,  Jersey  City,  in 
all  of  which  charges  success  has  crowned  his  efforts 
and  large  numbers  have  been  added,  and  more  than 
seven  hundred  have  been  baptized  by  him.  In  the 
midst  of  a  revival  in  Bergen  church  his  health 
broke  down,  and  he  has  since  preached  only  as 
strength  and  opportunity  have  permitted.  In  1895 
the  deserved  degree  of  D.  D.  was  accorded  him. 
He  has  been  influential  in  raising  large  sums  for  his 
denomination,  and  his  activity  in  temperance  and 
other  reform  work  is  highly  commendable.  He  is 
also  active  in  a  number  of  social  organizations.

John  Carver,  Katherine  his  wife,  John  Tilley,  Elizabeth  his  daughter 
and  granddaughter  of  Gov.  Carver,  and  John  Howland,  who  married 
Elizabeth  Tilley.  He  has  two  colonial  ancestors  who  fought  in  the 
Indian  war,  viz. :  Capt.  Joseph  Cady  and  Capt.  Aaron  Cook,  and 
four  ancestors  who  served  in  the  Revolutionary  war,  viz. :  Samuel 
Cady,  Shutesbury,  Mass.,  Joseph  Allen,  Newport,  R.  I.,  Ebenezer 
Burt,  Deerfield,  Mass.,  and  Townshend,  Vt.,  in  battle  of  Bennington,

Fletcher's  Regt.  Sept.,  1782;  each  of  whom  was  a  great-grand-

Capt.  Moses  Scott,  and  three  Revolutionary  war  ancestors  in  the 
persons  of  Lt.  Dea.  Oliver  Noyes,  Stephen  Johnson  and  Ebenezer 
Scott,  so  that  their  children  are  entitled  to  have  five  bars  if  they

Manassah  Cady  performed  good  service  in  the  Revolutionary  war, 
as  will  be  seen  from  the  following  facts  gleaned  from  the  report  of 
the  Commissioner  of  the  Department  of  the  Interior  at  Washington  : 
He  first  enlisted  in  April,  1776,  for  one  year  under  Capt.  Benoni 
Cutler  of  Killingly.  He  was  in  the  battle  of  White  Plains,  Oct.  28, 
1776.  In  June  or  July,  177S  or  9,  he  enlisted  for  seven  months,  and 
joined  the  army  near  West  Point.  From  April,  1780,  he  served  nine 
months  as  Corporal  of  Marines  on  board  the  frigate  Trumbull, 
of  28  guns.  They  sailed  from  New  London,  and  in  latitude 
3 6°  and  longitude  6o°  had  a  battle  June  2,  17S0,  with  the  frigate 
Watts,  34  guns.  It  was  a  drawn  battle,  but  the  Watts  had  the  worst 
punishment.  The  Trumbull  went  to  Boston  for  repairs  and  then 
sailed  on  another  cruise  for  South  Carolina.  After  his  return  home 
from  this  cruise  he  began  the  study  of  navigation  with  the  view  of 
fitting  himself  for  a  higher  naval  position,  but  the  closing  of  the 
war  induced  him  to  abandon  the  project.  Three  of  his  brothers 
also  had  service  in  the  war.  Immediately  after  marriage  he  settled 
(1785)  in  Hartland,  Vt.,  removing  thence  in  1789  to  the  adjoining 
town  of  Windsor,  where  he  lived  till  his  death.

was  a  member  of  the  building  commission  for  the  erection  of 
the  State  House  181 6.  He  was  an  Episcopalian,  and  was  prominent 
in  the  early  history  of  that  church  in  Concord,  beginning  as  early  as 
1817.  In  St.  Paul's  Episcopal  church  in  Concord,  erected  in 
1859-60,  is  a  memorial  window  to  Hon.  Albe  Cady.  There  is  also

for  many  years.  The  doctors  had  given  up  all  hope  of  her  recovery, 
when  her  brother  Jedediah  and  wife  were  impressed  that  they  ought 
to  go  and  pray  for  her  recovery,  and  doing  so,  she  began  to  improve 
at  once  and  soon  was  well  and  strong,  living  for  many  years  in  good 
health.  This  remarkable  result  so  astonished  her  physician  that  he 
said  he  would  as  soon  have  thought  of  going  to  the  graveyard  and 
praying  for  the  dead  to  rise.

King  was  b.  Feb.  n,  1846,  Hartford,  Conn.,  in  which  city  he 
received  his  education.  His  business,  that  of  a  wagon  builder  and 
painter,  has  been  continued  in  his  branch  of  the  King  family  from 
the  first  ancestors  who  came  to  this  country  early  in  the  seventeenth 
century.  Mr.  King  has  never  been  excelled  in  his  line  of  business, 
either  in  Hartford  or  Somersville,  where  he  still  continues  his  trade. 
Mrs.  King  obtained  her  education  in  the  schools  of  Stafford  and 
Somers,  and  at  Wilbraham  Academy.  After  marriage  she  devoted 
her  best  energies  to  the  interests  of  her  family,  and  like  her  grand- 
mother, Rhoda  Holmes  Cady,  excelled  in  the  noble  art  of  cooking. 
She  conscientiously  trained  her  children  in  the  right  ways  of  living, 
aiding  them  in  gaining  a  higher  education,  and  their  later  success  in 
life  is  an  abiding  tribute  to  the  faithful  discharge  of  a  mother's  trust. 
The  death  of  her  eldest  son  in  a  coasting  accident  caused  her  such 
grief  that  it  induced  a  disease  of  the  eye,  which  eventually  nearly 
deprived  her  of  vision,  but  her  natural  energy  did  not  forsake  her, 
and  later  she  has  devoted  her  time  to  the  making  of  rugs,  whose 
beauty  is  a  wonder  to  her  friends.

Mayro  Keeney,  son  of  Rockwell  Keeney,  b.  Manchester,  Conn., 
July  14,  1862.  Res.  Somersville,  Conn.  At  the  age  of  thirteen, 
while  Alice  Billings  was  attending  the  graded  school  in  Somersville, 
her  teacher  was  forced  to  leave  her  position  because  of  illness,  and 
greatly  to  her  surprise,  young  Alice  was  asked  by  the  school 
directors  to  finish  the  term  as  teacher.  The  school  directors' 
confidence  in  her  intellectual  and  executive  ability  was  not 
mispleased,  and  her  success  was  so  notable  that  she  was  requested 
to  fill  the  same  position  for  another  term.  She  then  decided  to  fit 
herself  more  thoroughly  for  teaching  and  entered  Hazardville  high 
school,  and  later  went  to  Wilbraham  Academy,  after  which  she 
spent  two  years  in  successful  teaching,  when,  as  often  happens,  she 
accepted  a  permanent  position  in  matrimonial  union. 

Mr.  Keeney  finished  his  education  with  a  three-years'  course  in 
Wilbraham  Academy,  and  then  engaged  service  in  the  Somersville 
Mfg.  Co.,  owned  by  his  father  and  brothers,  where  he  gained  a 
thorough  knowledge  of  the  woolen  business  in  all  of  the  departments, 
and  was  admitted  into  the  firm.  In  1904,  an  account  of  his  health, 
he  left  service  in  the  mill  but  still  retaining  an  interest  in  the  same, 
and  engaged  in  dairy  farming,  which  he  continues  with  marked  skill 
and  success.  In  1903  he  was  elected  to  represent  Somers  in  the 
Connecticut  Legislature,  and  served  as  a  member  of  the  finance 
committee.  He  was  reelected  the  following  year,  and  was  appointed 
chairman  of  the  finance  committee.  In  1906  he  was  elected 
Senator  from  the  35th  district  and  was  appointed  chairman  of  the 


222  DESCENDANTS   OF    NICHOLAS   CADY. 

committees  on  banking  and  school  funds,  and   a   member   of  the 

labor  committee,  in  each  of  which  he  was  influential.     In  1908  he 

was  chosen  Commissioner  of  Tolland  County,   which   position  he 

still  holds.

The  above  Robert  Mayro  Keeney,  after  attending  the  schools  of 
his  village  entered  Hazardville  high  school,  and  later  Hartford  high 
school,  where  he  graduated  with  honors  and  as  president  of  his 
class  in  1905.  He  was  considered  the  ablest  athlete  of  the  school; 
was  captain  of  the  track  team  for  1904,  and  won  the  "  Best  Athletic 
Cup"  for  the  school  two  years  in  succession.  In  the  fall  of  1905  he 
entered  the  Massachusetts  Institute  of  Technology  for  a  course  of 
study  in  mining  engineering.  In  1907  he  transferred  his  course  of 
study  to  the  School  of  Mining  in  Golden,  Col.,  where  he  intends  to 
obtain  his  degree  in  19 10. 

The  above  Grace  Mabelle  Keeney,  after  a  course  of  study  in  her 
native  town  and  in  Hazardville  high  school,  desiring  to  cultivate  a 
natural  gift  for  music,  has  entered  the  Whiting  School  of  Music  in 
Boston,  where  she  is  making  such  good  progress  that  she  will  doubt- 
less remain  and  finish  the  course. 

The  foregoing  Flora  May  King,  dau.  of  Ralph  and  L.  Lomyra 
(Davis)  B.  King,  after  receiving  her  education  in  the  graded  schools 
of  Somersville,  Conn.,  finding  no  opportunity  to  enter  a  higher 
institution  of  learning,  imposed  upon  herself  the  task  of  devoting  a 
part  of  each  day  to  the  study  of  the  higher  branches,  which  she 
rapidly  mastered,  such  was  her  intense  interest  in  them.  Then  to  fit 
herself  for  teaching  she  took  up  a  correspondence  normal  course  for 
teachers,  which  she  succeeded  in  passing  very  creditably.  In  1893 
she  began  teaching  in  a  district  school  in  Somers,  where  she 
remained  for  two  years,  when  she  was  promoted  to  a  position  in  the 
intermediate  department  in  the  Somersville  school,  remaining  there 
four  years,  or  until  1899,  when  she  was  advanced  to  the  grammar 
department,  where  she  remained  five  years,  during  which  time  she 
was  gradually  promoted  till  she  had  the  oversight  of  the  entire 
building.     At  the  expiration  of  this  time  she  resigned   to  accept  a

higher  position  as  principal  of  a  school  in  Southington,  Conn., 
where  she  was  popular  and  successful ;  but  being  offered  a  still 
higher  position  in  the  Northwest  School  of  Hartford,  she  resigned 
and  accepted  it,  beginning  work  in  her  new  charge  in  September, 
1905,  where  she  has  found  the  work  so  congenial  that  she  has 
remained  there  till  the  present  time,  1909.  About  1897  Miss  King 
became  interested  with  her  cousin,  D.  H.  Cady,  in  gathering 
records  of  the  descendants  of  Daniel  Cady  of  Stafford,  Conn.  She 
became  so  interested  in  the  work  that  she  continued  the  research  after 
Mr.  Cady's  death  in  1902.  At  a  meeting  of  the  Holmes-Cady  Asso- 
ciation in  1906  it  was  voted  that  O.  P.  Allen  of  Palmer,  Miss  Flora 
M.  King  of  Somersville  and  F.  W.  Cady  of  East  Providence  be  a 
committee  to  put  in  proper  form  for  publishing  such  records  of  the 
descendants  of  Nicholas  Cady  of  Water  town,  Mass.,  1645,  as  were 
obtainable,  and  O.  P.  Allen  was  invited  to  perform  the  task  of 
compiling  the  same.  The  compiler  of  this  work  is  pleased  to  take 
this  occasion  to  testify  to  the  faithful  and  patient  manner  in  which 
Miss  King  has  performed  the  part  assigned  her.

Miss  King  received  her  education  in  the  graded  schools  of  Somers- 
ville, later  taking  courses  of  instruction  to  fit  her  for  teaching.  She 
began  teaching  in  a  district  school  in  her  native  town  at  an  early 
age,  rising  to  a  position  in  the  intermediate  department  of  the 
Somersville  school.  She  resigned  her  position  there  to  take  a  more 
lucrative  one  in  Southington,  Conn.,  where  she  was  advanced  to  the 
position  of  principal  of  the  largest  school  in  town,  where  she  taught 
eleven  years  with  success,  the  last  seven  years  as  principal.  She  is  a 
member  of  the  First  Congregational  church  of  Southington,  and  of 
the  Hannah  Woodruff  chapter  of  the  D.  A.  R.,  being  a  prominent 
member  in  both  organizations. 

Mr.  Smith  began  his  education  in  his  native  town  and  graduated 
from  the  Lewis  high  school  of  Southington  in  1893.  He  has  been 
bookkeeper  for  the  At  water  Mfg.  Co.  of  Somersville  since  1901.  He 
is  highly  esteemed  by  all  who  know  him,  and  is  an  active  member  of 
St.  Paul's  Episcopal  church,  in  which  he  has  served  as  choir  master 
lay  reader,  and  superintendent  of  the  Sunday  school.

Broivn,  b.  Oct.  19,  1908.  Miss  King  received  her  education  in  the 
graded  and  high  schools  of  Somersville.  She  began  teaching  in  her 
native  town  in  1898,  and  was  soon  promoted  to  a  position  in  the 
intermediate  department  in  the  Somersville  school,  where  she  wrought 
with  her  sister  Flora  for  four  years  with  notable  success,  making, 
with  the  exception  of  one  year's  interim,  fourteen  consecutive  years 
of  teaching  service  rendered  by  the  King  sisters.  In  1904  she 
accepted  an  invitation  to  teach  in  Southington,  Conn.,  where  her 
pleasing  address  and  original  way  of  imparting  instruction  won  her 
great  favor  with  all.  She  resigned  here  to  take  a  better  position  in  a 
Hartford  school,  where  after  two  years  of  successful  work  she 
resigned  to  enter  the  matrimonial  state.

King,  b.  July  5,  1906.  (2)  Dwight  Howard  King,  b.  July  3,  1908. 
Mr.  King  having  taken  a  careful  course  of  training  in  the  art  of 
painting  and  lettering  wagons  and  carriages,  has  become  an  expert 
in  such  work.  Has  been  employed  in  Oldtown,  Me.,  in  Hartford, 
Conn.,  and  is  now  in  the  employ  of  the  Stevens-Duryea  Automobile 
Co.  of  Chicopee,  Mass. 

The  foregoing  Jeannie  Louise  King  received  her  early  education 
in  the  common  and  high  schools  of  Somers,  from  the  latter  of 
which  she  graduated  with  honor  and  as  the  class  prophet  at  the 
early  age  of  fifteen.  Then  she  taught  school  two  years  in  her 
native  town  most  acceptably.  In  1905  she  entered  the  New  Britain 
Normal  School,  where  she  was  popular  and  was  chosen  the  president 
of  her  class.  She  made  such  rapid  progress  in  study  that  she 
graduated  in  1907,  and  soon  after  accepted  a  position  in  the 
Northeast  School  of  Hartford,  where  with  her  sister  Flora  she  is 
making  an  excellent  record  as  a  teacher.  The  preceding  five  King 
sisters  are  holders  of  Connecticut  State  teachers'  certificates.  The 
sketches  regarding  them  have  been  made  more  full  than  is  usual  in 
a  work  of  this  nature  for  an  object  lesson,  showing  how  patient 
persistence  can  overcome  difficulties  and  win  abundant  success. 

The  foregoing  Howard  Ernest  King,  son  of  Ralph  and  L. 
Lomyra  Davis  B.  King,  was  educated  in  the  Somersville  schools,  the 
Hazardville  high  school,  and  graduated  with  honor  from  the  Enfield 
high  school  in  June,  1905.  His  natural  testes  inclined  him  to  a 
collegiate   course,  but    difficulties   seemed    to    bar   the  way,  so    he

thoroughly  learned  his  father's  trade  and    has   already  become  an 
expert  in  the  business,  and  no  doubt  will  win  success.

James2,  Nicholas1),  b.  Stafford,  Conn.,  Dec.  13,  1807  ;  m.  May  14, 
1832,  Maria  Hendrick.  He  d.  April  14,  1889;  she  d.  Sept.  15, 
1891.  When  his  father  was  informed  that  a  son  was  born  to  him  he 
said  :  "  He  is  welcome,"  so  the  name  Welcome  Jedediah  was  given 
him.  He  was  born  in  Tray  Hollow  and  spent  his  boyhood  there, 
also  the  first  year  of  his  married  life  in  conducting  the  farm  left  him 
by  his  father.  The  next  year  he  sold  the  farm  for  $1800  to  his 
brother-in-law,  Noah  Chapin.  He  then  removed  to  Stafford  Street 
and  engaged  in  conducting  a  general  store  in  partnership  with 
Eznall  Winter.  After  two  years  he  sold  his  interest  and  went  to 
Willington  and  opened  another  store  on  his  own  account,  selling  out 
after  two  years.  In  1S39  he  settled  in  Agawam  Parish,  West 
Springfield,  Mass.,  where  he  bought  real  estate  and  made  brick  till 
1845,  when  he  removed  to  Enfield,  Conn.,  bought  land,  built  a 
house  and  continued  brick  making  and  built  several  brick  houses. 
In  1855  he  began  the  manufacture  of  wines  from  native  fruits, 
which  increased  in  quantity  and  general  favor,  until  in  1885  there 
was  a  stock  on  hand  of  several  thousand  gallons,  being  the  largest  in 
Southern  New  England.  After  the  stock  was  sold  the  manufacture 
was  discontinued.  His  son  Dwight  was  taken  into  partnership  in 
1862.  Welcome  J.  Cady  was  brought  up  in  the  faith  of  the 
Methodist  denomination,  but  after  he  removed  to  Enfield  he  became 
a  Second  Adventist.  He  was  a  man  of  deep  religious  faith,  just  and 
honest  in  all  his  dealings,  and  respected  by  all.

out  on  interest.  He  was  nobly  generous,  and  gave  liberally  of  the 
surplus  products  of  his  farm  to  the  poor  who  were  in  need.

of  Latin  and  Greek,  and  other  preparatory  studies.     Having  finished 
school  in   1876,  he  engaged  to  travel  for  the  Appleton  Publishing 
Company  with  and  under  the  direction  of    his   cousin,    Emily    L. 
Cady,  a  long  experienced  agent  for  the  same  firm  then  operating  in 
Pennsylvania.     On  this  tour  he  visited  the  Centennial  Exposition  at 
Philadelphia,  and  terminated  these  labors  in  Baltimore,  Md.     Here 
he  was  elected  a  teacher  in  the  State  reformatory  institution  "The 
House  of  Refuge,"  in  which  capacity  he  remained  for  over  twelve 
years,  at  the  same  time  filling  the    position  of  instructor  of  vocal 
music  and  chapel  organist,  and  lastly  taking  on  also  the  office  of 
Assistant  Superintendent.     He  also  filled  the  position  of  organist  of 
Trinity  (Episcopal)  church,  Broadway,  Baltimore;  and  in  the  same 
city  he  devoted  much  time  to  the  study  of  art,  carrying  on  art  study 
after  this  in  N.  Y.  City,  in  private  schools  and  in  the  Academy  of 
Art  and  Design  at  23d  street    and  4th  avenue.     Being  a  lover  of 
nature  and  travel  he  took   the  opportunity  on  summer  vacations  to 
visit   the    resorts   of  beautiful   scenery  in   our   own    land,    such   as 
Niagara,  the  White  Mountains,  Chicago  and  the  Great  Lakes,  the 
Hudson,  Saratoga  Springs,  Mt.  Vernon,  and    the    delightful   ocean 
voyage  from  Baltimore  to  Boston.    Attracted  to  the  Pacific  coast,  he 
continued  his  natural  inclination  for    travel   and   research,  and    in 
January,    1892,    sailed   from    New   York    City   for   Seattle    via    the 
Isthmus  of  Panama,  visiting  with  pleasure  and  profit  many  Spanish 
ports  of  the   Pacific  with  camera  and  brush,  carrying  away  sketches

of  many  quaint  and  historic  sites.  During  his  first  year  in  Seattle 
he  was  elected  president  of  the  Seattle  Art  League.  In  the 
following  year  he  was  engaged  as  teacher  in  the  public  schools  of 
Washington,  and  has  continued  this  work  for  the  past  eighteen  years 
to  date,  1909,  with  only  the  interval  of  one  year,  when  he 
conducted  a  general  store  and  served  as  postmaster  in  the  ancient 
town  of  Seabeck,  Wash.,  doing  a  successful  business,  but  out  of 
love  for  schools  he  resigned  the  position  and  returned  to  teaching, 
in  which  work  he  is  still  engaged  (Nov.  1909),  thus  having  taught 
with  more  than  ordinary  success  for  over  thirty  years.  He  is  a 
member  of  these  orders :  Ancient  Order  of  United  Workmen, 
Masonic  Order,  Royal  Arch,  Eastern  Star,  Knights  of  Pythias,  and 
has  maintained  his  relationship  as  a  consistent  member  of  the 
Brooklyn  Baptist  church  since  the  date  of  uniting  in  1864.  He 
has  never  married,  but  has  found  opportunity  to  do  much 
philanthropic  work  for  the  neglected  and  orphans,  devoting  to  such 
purposes  more  means  in  general  than  reserved  for  personal  use, 
although  he  enjoys  the  reputation  of  being  one  of  the  substantial 
property  owners  of  the  incorporated  town  of  Port  Orchard,  county 
seat  of  Kissup  Co.,  Wash.,  where  he  resides  and  is  surrounded  by 
many  friends  and  associates.

appears  in  Alstead,  himself  and  wife  only,  so  it  is  supposed  he  was 
m.  about  1790.  He  removed  from  Alstead  and  settled  in  Kingston, 
now  Granville,  Vt.,  and  has  been  credited  with  a  family  of  17  sons 
and  2  daughters,  but  I  have  been  unable  to  obtain  any  record  save 
of  one  son.

520.  Isaac,  b.  Alstead,  July  26,  1793. 

279.  Noah6  Cady,  (Isaacs,  Phineas-*,  Daniels,  Daniel2, 
Nicholas1),  b.  abt.  1767.  The  first  reliable  mention  of  this  Noah 
Cady  is  found  in  the  U.  S.  census  of  Vermont  in  1790,  which  locates 
him  in  Hancock,  Vt.,  and  gives  him  a  household  of  one  male  and 
one  female,  from  which  we  may  infer  that  he  had  just  been  married. 
The  town  of  Hancock  was  first  settled  in  1788  and  organized  in 
1792,  when  Noah  Cady  was  elected  the  first  Constable.  He 
remained  in  town  until  1820,  when  he  removed  to  Braintree,  Vt., 
where  he  died  in  1848.  The  date  of  his  marriage  and  name  of  his 
wife  have  not  been  learned.  While  the  fact  has  not  been  proved,  it 
is  supposed  with  great  probability  that  Noah  was  the  son  of  Isaacs 
of  Alstead,  N.  H.  Isaac6,  a  known  son  of  Isaacs  of  Alstead,  settled 
in  Greenville ;  Jacob,  another  known  son,  settled  in  Royalton,  and  a 
daughter,  Lavina,  settled  in  Concord,  while  Calvin,  a  supposed  son, 
settled  in  Roxbury.  All  removed  to  Vermont  at  about  the  same 
time,  with  ages  allowing  them  to  be  members  of  the  same  family. 
The  children  of  Noah  Cady  were  b.  in  Hancock,  Vt.,  with  one 
exception.

Gov.  Farwell  d.  Grant  City,  Mo.,  April  10,  1889. 
After  a  short  experience  as  a  clerk  in  a  dry  goods 
store  he  became  an  apprentice  to  a  tinsmith,  and 
followed  that  occupation  till  the  age  of  19.  He 
then  established  himself  in  the  hardware  business 
in  Lockport,  111.,  and  in  1840  located  in  the  then 
new  town  of  Milwaukee,  Wis.,  where  he  soon  had 
one  of  the  largest  wholesale  stores  in  the  West. 
Ten  years  later  he  withdrew  from  the  business  to 
engage  in  other  enterprises.  In  1847  he  made  a 
large  purchase  of  real  estate  in  the  city  of  Madison,

where  he  took  up  his  location  and  began  improve- 
ments on  a  large  scale,  and  is  said  to  have  con- 
tributed to  the  promotion  of  the  interests  of  the 
city  more  than  any  other  person.  Although  averse 
to  politics,  he  was  induced  to  accept  the  Whig 
nomination  for  Governor  of  Wisconsin  in  1851  and 
was  elected  to  the  office,  filling  the  gubernatorial 
chair  from  1852  till  Jan.  2,  1854.  In  1863  he  was 
appointed  by  President  Lincoln  assistant  examiner 
in  the  patent  office  in  Washington  and  was  pro- 
moted to  principal  examiner  three  months  later, 
holding  the  position  9  years.  He  resigned  and  a 
few  years  later  removed  to  Grant  City,  Mo.,  to 
spend  his  days.*

1840,  Lovila  Moors,  b.  1820,  near  Denmark,  N.  Y.  He  d.  April, 
1880,  Red  Oak,  Iowa;  she  d.  there  March  30,  1887.  Early  in  the 
forties  he  started  the  first  extensive  wholesale  hardware  business  in 
the  Northwest  in  Milwaukee  in  company  with  his  nephew,  Leonard 
J.  Farwell,  which  was  continued  with  success  for  about  seven  years, 
or  until  the  election  of  Mr.  Farwell  as  Governor  of  Wisconsin,  as 
related  above,  when  the  firm  was  dissolved  and  stock  disposed  of. 
Mr.  Cady  then  opened  the  same  business  in  Watertown,  Wis.,  which 
he  disposed  of  in  1857  and  became  associated  with  a  large  firm  in 
New  York  City  in  the  same  line.  Later  he  was  with  Janes  & 
Lapham  of  Pittsburgh,  of  the  great  iron  and  steel  works.  In  1878 
he  located  in  Red  Oak,  where  he  remained  till  his  death.

Mr.  Cady  came  from  a  long  line  of  cultured  and  distinguished 
ancestry.  He  was  a  resident  of  Brooklyn,  N.  Y.,  from  1825  to 
1865.  He  was  admitted  to  the  bar  in  1844  and  commenced 
practice  in  New  York  City,  where  he  continued  a  lawyer  until  about 
1870.  At  the  age  of  25  he  was  elected  an  Alderman  of  Brooklyn, 
and  became  chairman  of  the  Judiciary  of  the  board.  At  the  close 
of  his  term  in  1840  he  was  chosen  as  City  Attorney.  In  1851  he 
was  elected  to  the  New  York  Legislature  and  was  placed  at  the  head 
of  the  Committee  on  the  Codification  of  the  Laws,  which  was 
adopted  by  both  branches  of  the  Legislature  and  has  since 
continued  the  code  of  procedure  in  New  York.  He  also  served  as 
chairman  of  the  Committee  on  Emigration,  and  had  his  suggestions 
adopted  against  great  opposition  by  interested  parties,  which 
suggestions  have  been  carried  out  by  New  York  and  Congress.  He 
served  with  great  distinction  during  two  sessions  of  the  Legislature, 
and  was  unanimously  nominated  for  a  third  term  but  declined  the 
honor.  He  served  for  several  years  as  counsel  for  the  City  Water 
Board,  and  his  plans  were  carried  out  against  strong  opposition.  In 
1859  he  was  elected  to  the  office  of  Registrar,  and  later  was 
appointed  one  of  the  Judges  of  Brooklyn,  and  during  the  draft  was 
efficient  in  raising  a  regiment  and  was  offered  the  position  of 
Colonel,  which  he  declined.  In  1870  he  met  with  severe  financial 
losses,  but  undaunted  he  began  life  anew  and  won  success  out  of 
failure.  In  1875  he  removed  to  Washington,  D.  C,  where  he  took 
rank  with  the  ablest  lawyers  and  renewed  the  success  of  his  earlier 
years.  As  a  lawyer  he  was  judicial,  keenly  analytical,  and  prepared 
his  cases  with  great  care.  He  was  a  lover  of  the  classics,  poetry 
and  the  Bible,  and  above  all  a  devoted  Christian,  and  ever  sustained 
a  character  above  reproach.*

m.  May  31,  1823,  Eliza  Petty,  dau.  of  David  and  Betsey  (Gladding) 
Petty,  b.  Providence,  R.  I.,  Oct.  12,  1804,  d.  April  28,  1882  ;  he  d. 
in  Providence,  July  18,  1886.  Both  are  buried  in  the  North 
Cemetery  of  Providence.  Mr.  Cady  in  early  boyhood  moved  with 
his  father  to  Jewett  City,  Conn.,  where  he  entered  a  cotton  mill  and 
became  a  bobbin  boy,  where  he  continued  until  the  age  of  18,  when 
he  went  to  Providence  and  engaged  with  Cyrus  Manchester  as  a 
carpenter's  apprentice,  and  remained  till  of  age.  After  this  he 
formed  two  partnerships  in  succession  for  conducting  the  business  of 
house  building  with  much  success  until  he  was  about  30  years  of 
age.  Being  of  a  highly  religious  temperament,  he  had  in  early  life 
united  with  the  Old  First  M.  E.  church,  and  was  active  in  its  field  of 
work.  In  1831  he  obtained  a  license  to  preach,  and  although 
hampered  by  a  limited  education  he  was  soon  invited  to  join  the 
N.  E.  Conference,  and  such  was  his  natural  talent,  fostered  by 
such  study  as  he  could  devote  to  his  chosen  work,  that  he  filled  his 
various  appointments  with  approbation  for  many  years  as  follows  in 
succession,  viz. :  Warwick  circuit,  Webster  and  Holland,  Mass., 
Newport,  Portsmouth,  R.  I.,  Attleboro,  Milford,  Mass.,  Pawtucket, 
Bristol,  R.  I.,  New  Bedford,  Mass.,  Willimantic,  Tolland  Mission, 
Conn.,  and  South  Providence,  R.  I.  In  1S54  he  was  placed  on  the 
supernumerary  list,  but  continued  to  supply  for  several  years.  In 
several  of  his  appointments  he  built  churches  or  closed  up  the  work 
begun  by  others.  About  1858  he  built  a  house  in  Providence,  where

Dr.  Cady  Jr.  practiced  medicine  for  about  forty  years  with  a 
success  rarely  met  with.  His  practice  extended  to  the  different 
towns  bordering  on  his  own,  and  even  into  and  beyond  the  city  of 
Auburn.  As  was  the  case  with  his  father,  he  never  could  or  would 
refuse  to  respond  to  the  calls  of  the  poor  and  needy,  and  never  tried 
to  enforce  the  collection  of  an  account  against  them.  Being  a  man 
of  great  ability  he  was  often  solicited  to  take  positions  of  trust  but 
always  declined  to  do  so,  preferring  to  give  his  whole  attention  to 
his  chosen  profession.  Both  the  Dr.  and  his  excellent  wife  were 
consistent  and  honored  members  of  the  Baptist  church  of  Sennett.

She  had  good  training  under  her  able  father's  care,  and  in  Miss 
Willard's  "  Troy  Female  Academy,"  so  that  she  was  well  prepared 
for  the  life  battle  which  she  had  mapped  out  for  herself  in 
promoting  the  exaltation  of  her  sex  before  the  law.  She  lived  long 
enough  to  command  the  respect  of  all  and  witness  the  accomplish- 
ment of  many  of  her  cherished  plans,  and  win  the  gratitude  of 
woman  for  all  time.  She  had  a  leading  hand  in  producing  that 
standard  work,  "The  History  of  Woman  Suffrage,"  in  three 
volumes.  Her  marriage  to  Mr.  Stanton  was  singularly  fortunate,  for 
he  was  in  full  accord  with  his  wife's  views.  He  was  one  of  the 
early  anti-slavery  agitators,  and  a  journalist  who  won  many  honors  in 
the  advocacy  of  what  he  deemed  right.  He  was  also  a  born  orator

Mr.  Cady  is  reckoned  among  the  respected  pioneers  of  Schuyler

Jackson  Democrat,  but  has  never  entered  the  field  of  politics  nor 
sought  office.  Is  a  member  of  the  Christian  church,  as  was  his 
wife.  Is  a  Royal  Arch  Mason,  and  has  been  W.  M.  of  Camden

the  Isthmus.  He  now  bought  153  cattle  and  13  horses  and  took 
them  across  the  plains  to  California ;  was  successful  in  his  venture,

Mr.  White  is  descended  from  "  the  Puritans  of  old 
England,  and  in  this  country  he  traces  his  genealogy 
through  a  long  line  of  God-fearing  ancestors  to 
John  White,  who  twelve  years  after  the  landing  of 
the  Pilgrim  Fathers  at  Plymouth  first  settled  at 
Cambridge  in  1632.  It  is  a  distinguishing  charac- 
teristic of  the  White  family  to  have  always  enjoyed 
the  confidence  and  esteem  of  their  neighbors,  as 
witness  Nathaniel,  son  of  John,  a  member  of  the 
General  Court  or  Legislature  of  Connecticut  from

1659  to  1 7 10;  his  last  election  was  his  85  th,  and 
his  age  81.  In  those  days  an  election  was  held  for 
each  session,  and  many  times  more  than  one  session 
was  held  during  the  year. 

"After  receiving  a  New  England  high  school  educa- 
tion Mr.  White  entered  early  upon  a  business 
career,  first  in  Boston  and  later  in  Springfield,  Mass. 
In  1 87 1  he  removed  to  Memphis,  Tenn.,  and 
engaged  in  the  insurance  business.  In  1877,  at  the 
request  of  the  receivers  of  the  Mutual  Life 
Insurance  Company  of  St.  Louis,  he  removed  to 
that  city  to  assist  them,  and  there  he  has  since 
resided.  In  January,  1883,  he  became  Deputy 
Circuit  Clerk,  and  with  the  exception  of  two  years 
spent  as  secretary  of  a  mining  company,  he  held 
that  very  important  position  for  a  period  of  twenty 
years,  serving  under  three  Republican  and  two 
Democratic  clerks.  He  discharged  with  great  zeal 
and  fidelity  the  numerous  and  exacting  duties  of 
that  office." 

Mr.  White  was  made  a  Mason  in  De  Soto  lodge,  No. 
299,  Memphis,  Tenn.,  in  1874,  and  since  then  he 
has  successfully  passed  to  the  highest  degrees  in 
Masonry,  including  the  Scottish  Rite,  and  has  held 
and  honorably  filled  many  of  the  highest  official 
positions  in  the  order.  In  1908-1909  he  held  the 
office  of  Grand  High  Priest  of  R.  A.  Masons  of 
Missouri.  "  Few  men  and  few  Masons  have  such  a 
fine  record  of  activity  and  useful  service."*

As  a  boy  Mr.  Cady  was  studious  and  well  behaved  in  school,  a 
good  scholar  and  a  general  favorite  with  teachers  and  fellow-pupils. 
He  received  his  education  in  the  public  schools  of  Thompsonville, 


366  DESCENDANTS   OF    NICHOLAS   CADY. 

Conn.,  and  graduated  there  from  the  high  school  in  1858.  He  then 
took  a  course  of  study  in  the  Sufheld  Institute  for  a  year,  and  began 
life  with  a  good  business  education.  Being  an  only  son  it  was 
natural  for  him  to  remain  with  his  father  and  enter  into  business 
with  him  as  a  partner  under  the  firm  name  of  W.  J.  Cady  &  Son. 
He  was  financially  successful  in  all  of  his  undertakings.  After  living 
just  fifty  years  in  Thompsonville,  he  left  the  homestead  in  the  hands 
of  his  son-in-law,  J.  W.  Parker,  and  moved  to  Springfield,  Mass., 
where  he  purchased  a  home,  and  in  which  city  he  resided  until 
death.  During  the  last  years  of  his  life  he  became  much  interested 
in  his  Cady  ancestry,  and  collected  nearly  a  complete  record  of  the 
descendants  of  his  grandfather,  Jedediah  Cady,  having  spent  much 
time  in  searching  the  town  and  family  records  for  correct  data.  In 
connection  with  these  families  he  also  collected  considerable  material 
from  other  branches  and  arranged  it  in  proper  form  for  ready 
reference  and  with  a  possible  view  of  publishing  the  same.  The 
compiler  of  this  volume  is  gratefully  indebted  to  the  patient  research 
of  Mr.  Cady  for  much  valuable  material.  It  was  due  to  his  fore- 
sight that  the  Holmes-Cady  Reunion  Association  was  formed  and 
still  continues  its  pleasant  and  profitable  annual  meetings,  a  full 
account  of  which  will  be  found  in  the  appendix  of  this  volume. 
Mr.  Cady's  parents  were  Second  Adventists  and  he  was  in  sympathy 
with  them  in  faith,  although  he  did  not  identify  himself  with  that 
body  of  believers  until  he  was  past  40  years  of  age,  after  which  he 
was  a  firm  believer  in  the  doctrines  which  they  advocated  and  a 
staunch  supporter  of  the  same,  giving  of  his  time,  money  and 
influence  to  the  cause  he  so  much  loved.  He  held  positions  of  trust 
in  the  church  and  in  the  camp  meeting  association  of  Springfield 
Mass.,  having  served  for  several  years  as  superintendent  of  the 
camping  ground.  His  honesty  was  never  questioned.  He  was  a 
man  of  good  financial  ability  and  his  advice  was  often  sought  by 
young  business  men.  His  sterling  qualities  of  mind  and  heart,  his 
serene  and  cheerful  intercourse  with  his  fellow-men,  his  abiding 
Christian  faith  attracted  a  large  circle  of  friends  by  whom  he  was 
sincerely  mourned  when  parted  from  them  by  death.

Mr.  Cady's  mother  was  Rebecca  Smith,  dau.  of  Thomas  Smith, 
whose  father  was  a  resident  of  Long  Island  and  was  driven  from  his 
farm  by  the  British  during  the  Revolutionary  war,  after  which 
Thomas  became  one  of  General  Washington's  bodyguard.  Mrs. 
Cady's  father  was  descended  from  Joshua  Branchall,  who  emigrated 
from  Portland,  England,   in    171 2   to  Plymouth,   Mass.     Mr.  Cady

in  Dryden,  N.  Y.,  in  181 6,  and  added  to  it  from  time  to  time  until 
it  contained  about  600  acres,  mostly  cleared  from  heavy  timber  and 
stumps  and  put  in  a  high  state  of  cultivation.  Mr.  Cady  was  one  of 
the  wealthiest  citizens  of  his  town,  and  did  as  much  to  improve  and 
elevate  all  of  the  farming  and  business  interests  of  his  adopted  town 
as  any  citizen  who  ever  resided  in  it.  He  was  an  active  and  hearty 
supporter  of  all  important  public  interprises.  He  contributed  $7000 
towards  building  the  Southern  Central  Railroad  after  he  was  75  years 
old.  He  was  a  man  of  conceded  ability  and  rare  good  judgment,  as 
well  as  a  man  of  strictest  integrity.  He  held  several  important  town 
offices,  including  that  of  Supervisor,  for  several  terms,  and  he  was  a 
member  of  the  State  Legislature  during  the  years  1850  and  1857, 
and  gave  entire  satisfaction  to  his  constituents.

monument  in  Evergreen  Cemetery,  Central  Village,  Conn.,  as  unique 
as  was  his  own  personality.  "  It  was  characteristic  of  the  man  who 
had  played  the  violin,  taught  the  young  people  to  dance,  and  had 
been  the  most  popular  prompter  in  Eastern  Connecticut  for  nearly 
half  a  century."  The  uniqueness  of  the  shaft  consists  in  the 
emblems  and  inscriptions  carved  thereon.  On  one  side  is  cut  a 
violin,  above  which  are  the  words,  "All  Ready,  Mr.  Cady,"  and 
below  it,  "At  Rest."  On  the  opposite  side  is  the  figure  of  a  cow, 
with  the  inscription,  "  Rosie,  my  first  Jersey  cow ;  "  above  the  figure 
and  below  it,  "Record:  2  lbs.  and  15  ounces  of  butter  from  one 
day's  milk."  On  the  third  side  is  the  name,  "  Mary  J.  Lee,"  and 
beneath  the  name,  "She  was  kind  to  dumb  animals."  And  on  the 
fourth  side  the  family  inscription.     No  ch.
